I am kind of new to these content sites. I am wondering I am allowed to use the same content I posted in HP in other content sites.
Thanks for the help!
The only reason why I ask this question is because of this statement:
"HubPages does not assign ownership of a specific topic to a Hubber. Anyone is free to write on any topic they like. However, by creating a high number of Hubs filled with original, useful content, you will boost your HubPages status and you may become recognized in the community as an expert."
If they do not have ownership over my content, then I am free to do whatever with it right? I know some consequences may occur and that's why I want read some opinions from other first.
I strive to make high-quality content but I want to get more traffics from multiple sources. I am not saying HP is bad. In fact, I really like this site due to its ease of use. But reality comes first!
2uesday has made it clear ..i will expand it a little further...
What you write is yours, you own your content . Topics or niches are common to everyone. Like wise anyone can write on any subject they please, no one owns a particular area or a subject or a genre of writing.
You can take it from here and use it else where as a owner, but you cannot place the same content on other sites at the same time - that is duplication of material. Google frowns upon it as well .
I hope this helps.
I will be honest, I have tried other content sites and only found myself to be completely frustrated. Some sites will rip your content off and others will set the bar so stinking high, if your new you will quit anyway.
Hi, my take on this is HubPages do not own your content but they are the ones publishing it and can refuse to do so if it does not fit with their TOS and rules.
The quote you give is referring to a writer not having an exclusive right to writing hubs on a certain topic.
I may be wrong on my interpretation of the quote and if so hope someone will correct this in a future post.
BTW You do keep the copyright of the article you write and publish here.

I have seen some of my blog posts in this site! Is this a legitimate site? I am sure there is other content there that is re-posted. I have not checked for my hubs yet. Maybe I am missing something.

I just left a thread where the main complaint was that squidoo writers were going to bring the quality down. But what surprises me is not the complaining but the lack of analysis of the big picture. I started on...
