How do you check if your article is stolen?

    I feel it is good now and then to check if any of our articles has been stolen, copied, etc., off HP. There was a forum last year that was agog with the issue of our stolen articles and some hubbers gave us tips on how to go online to check. The issue was eventually resolved.

    I can't seem to find the thread anymore(its been so long)and will like to know the steps on how to find out.

    I know there was something about copying a portion of our hub content somewhere, but can't remember where or how.

    Can someone please enlighten me on this?

    Just have this gut feeling something fishy may be up.

      Viryabo,

      You can use Copyscape for text and Tineye for image search.

      Copying is rampant on the internet, that's a sad fact.

    A simple way is to take a sentence in your Hub, C&P it into Google search and hit search.
    I have found a lot that way.
