I just found an entire hub of mine posted on this site. I have emailed them and am sending a DMCA.
I don't know if they have copied anyone else's material, but you might want to check.
wow, that is very alarming. I'm not sure what a DMCA is?? Is the site that posted your hub Fropper.com? I'm not sure what the address following that is.
This makes me sad about the lack of integrity of other people.
DMCA may or may not apply on sites hosted in india. If the fropper.com is hosted on US servers then they'll take DMCA seriously,if not then you have to keep the communication open.
Fropper.com is a social network and not any article directory/content network etc btw.
Yes, skyfire, it is, but there is my article masquerading as someone's blog post.
It advertises itself as a free blogging site as well.
I joined the site and posted a comment right under the post explaining that the material was copied from my site, and giving a link back to the copied HubPage.
I can't actually file a notice against them, but I have emailed their customer support and asked that they remove the article as well as close the account of whoever posted it.
Denise, a "DMCA" is the short way to say the you are filing a Notice of Infringement under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).
As of today, I have had an email from customer support asking me to send a screen shot of the article in question (which I did). I left another comment identifying myself as the rightful owner of the article, and asking that it be removed. So far no action.
It amazes me that they do not moderate comments. I had to take out a membership to comment, though. But I certainly would not leave such comments on my site (not that I would copy an article, either). Go figure.
I pretended I was Google last time to get them to get rid of an article of mine, although different site, same nationality of lazy spammer. Filing a Dmca is universal I thought, if they have adsense!!

What do you suggest...Someone copied my article off my Hub page, posted it elsewhere, and did not give me credit for having writen it but rather presented it as his own.
