I've just had my first copyright notice come up in my hubs listings. Somebody without an original thought in their brain has copied one of my hubs to fill a section of their site. They've then topped/tailed it with a short paragraph of their own stuff.
So, I'll spend the rest of today trying to find out how to file a DMCA notice I guess. They have no email address, just a house address. I could leave it 3 weeks then go bang on their door as it's only 200 miles away and I'll be down that way next month and know their village.
Is there a "filing a DMCA" page on hubpages I can refer to?
To be honest, I'd rather just bill them £1000 for using it.
Hi earner. When the docstock problem came up, we could file DMCA complaints on the site itself through the 'DMCA' button found below. Did you see this on the site of the one who copied your hub?
No - and I've never seen a DMCA link/page on any site before.
This is just some bloke sat in his house creating websites.
This is becoming rampant now and I'd rather bill them £1000 too, if I knew how to.
Google complaint form:
https://www.google.com/adsense/support/ … _complaint
You want to find the DMCA notice guideline page for the site you have to send the notice to. They'll let you know any specifics that need to be in the letter as well as where (what email) you have to send it to, or if they require a hardcopy mailed or faxed.
Good luck with the DMCAs.
I have filed probably ten, and I think one actually took a site down.
I've been arguing with Blogger now for about 3 weeks about a site that's entire content is nothing but my blogs.
I even started linking back to my own sites in the posts, and they copy that too.
So if they look at their sites, they have to see my link.
But still, I wish you luck!
I have this hub: http://hubpages.com/hub/Copied-Content
Sometimes it may be easier to go straight to Google, especially if they feature ads.
I know one time I went to the site and filed a report with them, and they demanded me prove it was my content before they'd touch it. I provided dates for when mine was published and they said that wasn't good enough because I could be making it up. Some websites are a-holes. Good luck.
I take one day per month and file NOIs to various sites. And the only people who have been bad about it are care2.com. Everyone else has either complied right away, or after I sent a notice to their ISP.

There is so much of this going on that it may not be worthwhile to mention. Since I know that this site is not cooperative, I sent my DMCA complaint to Google. My hub is copied word for word with all the lovely...
