A blog with 100's of our Hubs copied- sorry to be a pain in the a$$

    A blog called You and Me magazine (http: //www.sunday136.cn/) and Buyu Food (  http: //buyu369.cn/?p=274) has stolen 100's of our Hubs.  I've contacted some of the hubbers whose work I've found, but now realize the enormity of the theft and can't individually contact everyone.  This blog is not Adsense enabled.  I can't figure out how to contact anyone on the site.  I've just posted comments on my stolen hubs asking them to be taken down.  Any ideas what can be done (Sunforged will no doubt have a great idea).  It's just a really weird site, check it out.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news after the docstoc debacle, but, as a victim of this site's theft as well as docstoc's, I figured any hubber affected would want to know. 

    Thanks, all.

      She's taken some of my hubs too -- blew that steam last night until the stars were twinkling off this morning.  Frankly, it's copied word for word, and it doesn't help to keep steaming over it.  If they really want to steal, they'll find a way.

      It's unfortunate, but take it as a compliment that your writing is great and worthy of being stolen!  big_smile

    I looked through it last night. It seems all of the posts were made 5/18.

      I still don't like it, pretty much everything there is taken from HP.  I'd like to figure out how to get it down, can't figure out any way to trace the blog.  It's very irritating.

    The problem is that they're not displaying AdSense, so not much you can do there. Although their publisher ID is clearly available but the ads aren't showing up. The domain is in China, so not much to do there either. I think Sunforged said it was a blogger blog? Could be. Looks like it. Google owns Blogger, so you could try reporting it to them.

    Here is the whois info for the site

    Domain Name: sunday136.cn
    ROID: 20081231s10001s27536752-cn
    Domain Status: clientDeleteProhibited
    Domain Status: clientTransferProhibited
    Registrant Organization: ?????????????
    Registrant Name: ????????????
    Administrative Email: wunai123wunai@163.com
    Sponsoring Registrar: ??????????????????????????
    Name Server:ns1.dreamhost.com
    Name Server:ns2.dreamhost.com
    Name Server:ns3.dreamhost.com
    Registration Date: 2008-12-31 22:21
    Expiration Date: 2009-12-31 22:21


    Since it hasnt been updated in months, i owuldnt be surprised if its never renewed next month

    Blanking all the registrant info is against ICANN regulations, if you wanted to pursue it, you can have the site quickly taken down for false or missing registrar info

    lrohner, i dont think that was me ..its a wordpress site on its own domain, so its not blogger

    Wouldn't worry about that one too much - I have had problems with Chinese sites.

    They tend to disappear from the search engines pretty quickly smile

    I hope my hubs are secured.

    Contacting DreamHost would work also.

    Not sure if you should be worried about this one to much.

    My prelim research shows almost no traffic to the site and I tested a small piece of text taken from a hub that is copied onto teh site.

    "Disney made the great animated film 101 Dalmatians in 1961. Then in 1996 they made a real film with Glenn Close"

    First result 'wiki' , looks like the hub wasnt all that original to begin with!

    hubpages article at position 5 - the sunday136.cn site is nowhere to be seen, probably doesnt rank at all since its all dupe content

    The associated twitter to both sites is

    http://twitter.com/sophieqd

    there havent been updates in months

    using that same username sophieqd, you can find a bukisa account with copied content(ezine) also (not updated in months)

    http://www.bukisa.com/people/sophieqd

    and here is the hubprofile of teh same user (has the same pic)

      Thanks, everyone.  I'm feeling pissy after the whole ordeal this weekend.  I really want to tell these SOB's what I think of them.  How friggin' rude.  One of the articles even had the Hubpage challenge logo on it.  Sheesh.  The nerve.

    I'm pretty much the biggest dumbass there is when it comes to internet/computer technical stuff, so I'll just ask.  Is it possible for hubpages to disable the right mouse button on these pages.  I believe if someone intent to steal our work by cutting and pasting would not do it if they had to re-type everything.  Just a thought.

      yes, its a javascript code, youll see it at photo sites that wont let you right click and copy photos

      BUT, you just go into your browser settings and disable java, then you can copy if you like

      anybody who wants to copy it will probably know that.

      A lot of times people use programs to "scrape" teh content froma  site, there really isnt a way to stop this...unfortunately the bad guys are smarter...the goods guys just play catch up

    If I remember rightly, Bukhisa and Ezine are pretty good at taking down content.

    Flixya - that is one site that I would love to see disappear mad

    I just clicked the link and found one of my  hubs right away. But when I started to read it, found that they had changed some words. It looked like it had been turned into a Mad Lib because it no longer made any sense. Sorry, I had to laugh. It was ridiculous. If you find one of your hubs, give it a read and see what they've done to it.

    And the trouble with talking about these people is that now we are all running over to check out the site and she's getting more traffic.

      I know, I thought about that, too.  I'm over it now.  Have accepted it's just part of online writing and I'm not going to waste any more time with it.

    I think that's the right move, WS. I only worry when the site is monetized and/or ranks higher than the original content in Google. This site didn't meet either criteria.
