I was just checking one of my hubs (my latest one on pregnancy) and found it copied on another site called beyondjane.com. it is my exact article given credit to: Adaywa1 from India. I'm sure mine is not the only copied article there.
I have tried numerous time to use their contact form of which there is a security code. I am copying it exactly as it appears, and it keeps saying wrong. I also left a comment on the article page saying it was a stolen article and left a link to my hub.
what is the Google complaint form that I fill out? There are ads on the site.
You need to send DMCA notices to the hosting company and Google
Templates for these notices can be found at:
Hope that helps.
Rebekah i too have left a comment on this site maybe if more people can do this it will encourage them to remove it.
Just searched a few more of this guys articles and he has a few more stolen articles from hub pages. He also has one from hubpages user "hometips" on the 10 best campsites. His profile photo is also a stock photo not a real one.
I tried to contact them via their contact format and could not get through.
It seems they make it extremely hard to figure out the security code. I even used a magnifying glass and had it correct and it kept saying wrong, so my complaint never got through. I guess I'll try again.
it would be very nice if their page was full of recent comments stating there is copied material on the site.
I just checked and apparently he didn't like my comment on the article page as the article is now no longer there, but the link is still on google.
thanks for your help super chef!!
apparently there's a button above your hubs where you can check if they've been copied, but I never found it in my account
I didn't notice when I checked my account page, but sometimes it's good to go on a google search to check your hubs, especially if their views are low.
anamika, I did threaten him in my comment on his article page, and the article is now gone. thanks for the additional info.
EDIT: I checked my mail and I received an apology letter from
the poster. He said he also deleted the other three articles he had copied. He said he did it because he wasn't making any money and wanted to find keyword rich articles.
Beyondjane.com is a Triond Site. You should get the contact form by going to http://www.triond.com/contact or mail them at email@example.com. It is good that you posted a comment on the article threatening the guy to file a DMCA complaint ,before he managed to delete the comment at least some people should have seen it. I just checked if i could find the guy. He does not seem to be there anymore. Amen!
no, he is gone. I checked his name on google and could find no articles. he may or may not have learned a lesson.
apparently some other people had left some nasty remarks on his accounts. I don't really see a reason to leave nasty remarks, I simply left a comment saying he had copied my article, please remove it asap or I will file a complaint with google and left a link to my original hub.
This shows the power of the Hubpages community. I'm so glad it all worked out right in the end. Amber:)
