Yay, copyright symbol gone

    The copyright symbol has finally disappeared from my Olympic torch relay hub. As I mentioned before, it was posted on another site in China. I went in and changed a lot of it and added content and now it is not flagged as a duplicate anymore. Let's hope it stays that way...

      That is good news but too bad you had to change your own artilce instead of the offender removing his.

        I did get it removed once by reporting it to Adsense. But then the site put it back up once they were banned from Adsense and got another ad network.

    First - good news UW smile

    Second - you can copyright hubs? I did so much button pushing (I'm an instructions weirdo) when I joined I honestly missed that.

    So much for my ability to follow instructions.

      Actually, the copyright symbol shows up on your "My Hubs" page, and it usually means that someone has published your hub elsewhere.

      UW, I think it's sad that you had to rewrite your own work to avoid dup content. I think these plagiarists need a serious smack in the head!

        Honest, I had one copied a bit back. I found out quite by accident and didn't have a symbol anywhere. Odd.

    All your hubs are copyrighted by you as soon as you publish them.

    I'm talking about the copyright symbol that appears on the "my account" page when your hub has been published somewhere else.

    Ahhh. Never had that. Strange though because I've had work copied.

    I agree smile A lot of this hub will be rewritten every two years anyway to reflect the current or coming Olympic Games.

    I must say, I admire your positive outlook on the situation. Even though you are the "victim" you dealt with the situation in a way that finally worked out.

    I am very sorry to hear they stole your article.

    For sites that aren't running AdSense and who aren't honoring your NOI emails, you can contact Google and have pages that are stolen blocked/removed from the search index.
