Are we allowed to publish newspaper/magazine articles or articles written by someone else as hubs? Like these:

http://hubpages.com/hub/Manila-Ocean-Pa … ember-2007
I would say no I think I've flagged this guy in the past.
Unless the writer of the Hub was the writer of the news article. William Torpey, for example, has some great hubs which are simply him publishing articles from ten years ago or more.. some of them are very very interesting.
Now, I will flag and have flagged in the past, hubs which are direct copies of articles the Hubber does not own the rights to, but it pretty much goes nowhere.
I see. So if we wrote an article that was published in print, we can still publish it in Hubpages and that wouldn't be considered a duplicate. What if the newspaper or magazine that printed our article has an online archive of all published articles? Would our newly published hub be considered duplicate content then?
Yes - if it is on the internet, then it will show up as duplicate.
If you wrote it in the first place, you will be allowed to keep the Hub but its score will be penalised.
So I can publish past columns that I've written for the newspaper that have never been on the internet?

I don't think I'm alone in thinking that the main thing that has dragged hubpages down in this latest algo change is the amount of crappy content posted on here over the years. I understand the reasoning behind the...

Hopefully people know what I'm talking about. Hubs that wouldn't look out of place in a magazine. A mix of entertaining, educational, informational and not straying from the point.Have you written many?
