Ownership of Articles Written

    I recently joined your HubPages.  I was browsing thru FAQ and found the question on ownership.  It said that you do not assign ownership to any hubber.  It didn't answer the question for me.  Who owns the content?  Do I or you?

    best regards,
    june marie

    You retain full ownership. By publishing here, you merely grant HubPages a license to make your articles available on the site. You can remove or edit your content anytime.

      We can remove or edit our content anytime. Do you think is it good? Because google don't like to see the same article some where else.

        It is good for hubbers to have these options, especially compared to many other article sites that restrict their authors' rights.

    You own the content - I always make sure I put this at the bottom of my hubs....

    However, Hubpages wants to keep soul rights whilst you have it published.  You can unpublish at will and publish anywhere else on the Internet, but whilst you have it published here on Hubpages, you must not publish elsewhere.  This is duplicate content which Hubpages doesnt like (although the odd one is ok and will not affect authorscore) and neither does Google.

    I hope this helps... oh, and welcome to Hubpages! big_smile

      Creative Commons is a very generous license. It is essentially a "some rights reserved" license, which grants users significantly broader rights compared to the conventional "all rights reserved" copyright license.

    There you go what  a great response for you question posted 11 minutes since you joined Just shows how positive the comminity is here on Hubpages.
    Just  in case heaven forbid Hub Pages disappaered it is good to keep a 'back-up' of your articles elsewhere in storage on a USB stick for example

    Look at the bottom of the page wheree it says



    And the following quote from the terms of use may be pertinant, notice how it does say that this is a non-exclusive licence, you may publish your work elsewhere.

    Can somebody else steal you work if you do not have a copyright?

      Just like someone can steal your handbag someone can steal your hub.  'Enforcing your rights' is the issue as for most legal issues.
      However it cannot appear twice on hubpages at least in the medium & long term & will get picked up as duplcate elswhere.

      You always have copyright. That protection is automatic as soon as your content is fixed in a tangible medium such as a sheet of paper or a computer file.

      Once you have published your hub, there will be a time-stamp proving when you created it. If someone copies it, you can file a complaint to have the copy removed. This is usually adequate.

      If you have something truly valuable, registration of your copyright is highly recommended. The reason is that this will create a hard-copy so that no one can deny exactly what you produced and at what time.

      The nature of the internet is that some type of people take and use what they want - text and images.

      You automatically have copyright on anything you create.
