    I wrote a hub and it has been copied word for word. Someone (not on HP) has copied and pasted my work. What do I do?

        The website name is http://www.bukisa.com   The worrisome part of this site is that there is a box in the right hand margin that allows you to republish the articles.  Just copy and paste.  I would not have thought that a site would encourage that!  yikes

    How did you find out your work was copied, did you get an alert on your Hub Account?

      I imagine that's the usual way. I found out because I stumbled upon flixya and saw an article that had the same title as one of mine. On closer investigation, it was mine. The same account holder also had quite a few other HP'ers articles copied and pasted.

        I contacted Buskia and told them about it. I hope that they will do something about it.

              lol no worries but I didn't give you any, just pointed you in the right direction. and now you know it happens, keep your eyes peeled for the next time. That's the horrible side of online publishing hmm

      Another hubber found it and sent me an email. I went to the link and it was my Farmtown hub. They had copied it word for word. I am so mad.

        I reported to Buskia.com. However, I can't find a contact link at the one at EbonyBay.com.

    The one at EbonyBay.com says hubpages..but does not link to my page. Does this mean that someone else submitted it? Would the site have to have my permission to publish it? They are getting paid for Google ads from my hub.

      I have just repoted to google now so I think you should do the same on both your articles to make sure something is done. I'm not that great at doing things like this but I just as well start now. https://www.google.com/adsense/support/ … nswer=9894 here is the link.
