Sorry if this has already been discussed (I didn't see it in any forums when I searched) but what is this?
Is that actually associated with HP at all?
I think I saw a mention of it somewhere here today. I seriously doubt it is associated with HP HQ in any way
It was mentioned in the thread discussing what comes up in Google search if you type in Hubpages. Hubpages.in is on page 2
Not sure it is possible - they are in India. Besides, how this is materially different from say "Hubpages Blueprint" ebook?
Well then they should just slap 'em...LOL
I don't remember Izzy. Just google it. Or may be yahooing it will work better nowadays
Think it was someone called Benjamin King? Anyway, all those hubs that were on #1 aren't anymore
Dear friends i am amazed after reading your replies about hubpages.in its not illegal thing.Any one can buy domain names like this like hubpages.info,hubpages.net,hubpages.org and can use it as you want to.i know that hubpages.in is not anyhow affiliated with HP its different ,its an Indian articles directory.Its not trying to make bad use of HP as you can sea its logo is Hubpages.In and its different then hubpages.com's logo.
Also that site is not saying anywhere that it is affiliated with HP .So hubpages.com don't have any right to slap.I know all this because one of my relative own this site.
But still hubpages.com feel some problem due to hubpages.in it can buy hubpages.in paying a good money and that's all.
By the way if facebook.in is available you should buy it .Its just business and nothing is illegal in it.
What a load of arse!
When something is as established as well as Hubpages THAT is business, not a site that is effectively leeching off the main one like I see here. Hubpages is more than likely a trademark name and anything that is inferior that seeks to sponge off something better is distinctly average.
And furthermore if it was supposed to be a separate business then why put up a Hubpages widget confusing others! that's not business it's just leeching!
Dear if you know i have had linked to hubpages related articles in my hubs to send traffic to them,and this hubpages widget on hubpages.in is sending traffic to hubpages.com.
If you know (you must have know as you are a good writer and may be senior them me) that you are free to put hubpages widget on any site or blog which you own or have right to put it there.Its not to confuse anyone.Also the good news is we are getting proposals from peoples and companies to buy hubpages.in and to make it more good.Just waiting for the right proposal.just have got upto 30,000 USD .
Dear siddsingh its not CYBERSQUATTING to buy county domain names related to some big site and if it is all of the domain sellers should be punished as they are selling them.
The HubPages lawyer (if they have one) would definitely disagree with you.
By the way, I saw your profile on starhunt.com. You look uncannily like Priyanka Chopra. Or is that you?
dear if buying any country specific domain of any famous site is not illegal but if it is how companies are selling them.Can you tell me just one company who sells domains but just .com domains not country specific domains.
And about photo on starshunt ,that's not my photo.
domains hubpages.co.in is for sale on http://www.sedo.com/search/details.php4 … erid=17505 .sedo must be an american company so why hubpages cant stop sedo from selling this domain name?
Can't hubpages claim the domain name?
Just like Google, Amazon etcetera get the domain names back.
You guys clearly do not understand the international agreements and associated laws relating to copyright, trademarks and branding. If HubPages OWNS the trademark, they can Legally have Every Flea Desist from using such domain names ANYWHERE in the world that provides internet services.
Perhaps the Clue.. is that EVERY SITE and Domain must pay annual registration fees To...... ????
Sheessssh... track the process, including what is involved in registrar and reseller agencies
I want to say one thing that trademark and domain name are two different things.Hubpages.in is not using hubpages.com's trademark anywhere on the site also it is not saying that its affiliated with hubpages.com so its not illegal in anyway.
