some people don't have the "Copied Hubs" option, although i do. i was just wondering a) what this is and why everyone doesn't have it and b) does it show if someone copied your hubs at HubPages or at other places?
I have it-- but I never noticed and I never looked before. There are a couple listed that I knew were posted elsewhere-- but that's ok. I just found another one from that list-- It does give me a byline, but no one asked my permission. Thanks for bringing this subject up.
I'm thinking about what to do... I wouldn't mind if they post a link. I would even them a unique 'teaser' about the article if they linked it. Plus I have several others in the same category they might like to have(links to). Still thinking. Thanks again.
I am really not sure the reason I think I got it August last year from the date of the site reported in there. That is like 7 mths ago. Maybe it doesn't come up til they report to the hubber a copied site.
But-- I'm assuming (and yes, I know what that means) It would not show up if you did not have any copied or duplicate hubs. I love the fact that it gives a quick and easy way to issue a legal warning to the unauthorized user.
I would like to have it because the alternative is opening every single hub I have and using google search for the phrases used within. I have read that hubpages are pretty good at informing you if they find copied content, but is this the case when others here have occasionally said they have stumbled across their own copied ocntent on the web?
Izzy, when we say HubPages is pretty good of informing us, we're referring to that red "c" that appears next to a Hub in your Statistics page, and the "Copied Hubs" thing. That's the only way they tell us.
HubPages don't email you and let you know, or anything like that.
It wont matter if you contact their ISP because it is their job to prove they did not violate the copyright. If you can show it on a site which has a creation date earlier than their post, you are pretty much covered.
(I have filed so many of these things I have set up a seperate email address to deal with them all)
Be careful with that, I recently found the entire homepage of one of my sites had been copied and published in to an Indian magazine in England, which had been uploaded as a PDF on to a website, which had then been read by Google and then indexed!
Filed a DMCA against the site that had uploaded the publucation, and a copyright infringment notice to the magazine.

Perhaps this is old hat and I didn't read the memo, but just wanted to let you know (I informed HubPages) that web host service dot org has hacked HubPages. http : // webhostservice . org/ They have inserted their url...
Periodically I notice a downturn in the traffic to one or more hubs, which leads me to Google the beginning or sections of it/them in search of content theft. Now HP is helping with this chore by notifying us of...

We all appreciate that it's our own responsibility to protect our own work, but it's a big job, and it's in HubPages interest to help us, because plagiarism affects the whole site's income.On another thread, there have...
I just ran across a site, radikewl dot com, that had copied another hubber's hub that I had a comment on. The entire hub, including comments, is translated into Spanish. No author is named. That led me to do a search...
