    Another one of my hubs is copied in another site.  There are no backlinks but the author is recognized as me. http://lyrad.holynamians.com/index.php? … atid=99:re

    And then when I browsed through the articles..I see also Stacie's hub:  How to burn calories!  http://lyrad.holynamians.com/index.php? … ;Itemid=28

    I tried looking for an email to email the person who posted this but found none.  I also can't post in the forums unless I don't register. What do I do now?

    This is the person claiming it:

    http://www.facebook.com/people/David-Brian/610210199

    Unless that is a fake also? You could complain to google adsense, but it has to be done in writing.

      Hi Mark, thanks!  I'll write to this guy first before writing google.  This is a big help.

    It is probably a good idea to contact the site, even if this means registering with a throwaway email address.

    This is usually a good first step and it might not be possible unless you register an account with them, but as I said above, I would use a different email address.

    The Domain itself is registered to Brian Rosal of "Holy Name University," and is located in Tagbilaran City, Philippines.

    Brian Rosals Email is listed as SCANHEAD25 [at] YAHOO.COM
    His phone number is listed as +63.9207002504.

    These contacts may not be correct though.

    How do you find out when someones copied your work?

      very simple.. just copy down a line in inverted columns from your hub like this "THE LINE YOU WANT TO CHECK" and then paste it in google search and hit enter. If it is published on some other site, then it will show up in the search results and you can contact the same person and tell them to delete it....

      Uninvited writer and soni are right.

      I also typed my name in google search and saw this article there. My name is usually at the end of my hubs.  If I type ripplemaker, it also comes up.

          I know Brian Rosal well. Yes he's the owner of the site but there are about three administrators in that site so I can't tell if he is the one who copied your article or one of the administrators of that site.

    Or...look for the copyright symbol on "your account" page and it'll tell you where it was copied too when you click on the hub.

      Yes that's also a good option...

    Good luck with getting that all figured out.  You should send them a bill for your time.

    It is unfair and useless if you go to google adsense for complain, because it has nothing to do with the duplication of the content. And even you complain that to google the copied content will never be removed, Google has no authority to remove contents they can only remove adsense accounts and if the complain is far from their Term of service, they would not remove it.  First thing google's concern is only on adsense display and not on the content.  So my advice if you see copied content you email the site owner or leave a message on the site forum or leave a message on the shoutbox.  By the way some content copied on the site are not done by the site owners but by some members. So dont be harsh on complaining, let the site owners know your concerns and they will remove it.

    I have visited the http://lyrad.holynamians.com all hubs copied are now removed! so Ripple your prob is now solved!

    I have a slightly different issue.  I also have an eHow account and posted a blog there on chilling beer some time ago.  I created a Hub here and used the same info.  Now my hub is posting an alert saying the majority of the Hub was found on another website making it look like I plagiarized.  I did basically copy my blog on eHow, but it is still my original work.  Is there something I can do about the alert on my Hub?
