After original content

    There is one website that only accepts original articles. But after they publish it, they allow you to publish it elsewhere. On HubPages, after you write an original article, can you later publish it elsewhwere?

    I already read the FAQ about who owns the copyright.

    If the work is original, truly original, and it's on HP. Then you are free to publish it elsewhere. But, do realize you only hurt yourself and the secondary location where you publish it.

    Just a thought.

      I understand that any article published here and elsewhere on the Web will now be considered 'Duplicate' under the new rules - even if it is your own original work.

    Hey Camlo, that may be possible. I don't publish identical stuff elsewhere. I always re-write it, so it's not duplicated but conveys the same message. smile

      Yep, I think it's now taboo on HP, Cags!  I never realized there was so much junk on here until after the smack down hit us.  I thought the staff guarded against a lot of that type junk. That's what I get for trying to think!  smile

        Hey Randy, does that mean that HP is going to unpublish a hub, if it is published elsewhere?

        I mean, how would the be able to control it? I know, that HP has put filter in place to prevent publishing "duplicate" content, but that wouldn't stop some from publishing all original content, then publishing it elsewhere.

        Then again. I don't get into duplicate content, because I know better. tongue

          That is correct.  One of the check boxes for flagging a hub is that it is a duplicate.  HP does check for duplicate content, though not very efficiently  - hubdefender apparently does a much better job.

          It can cause problems when content is stolen and re-published by a thief, but HP has stated that they take great care not to unpublish because of theft.

            Good to know. Then in that case, strike out my original answer/post to this thread. I've been corrected.

                I'm doing well, but things on HP could be better. tongue I hope you're well also. smile

                  My stuff here is poking right along but is down a little bit.  I had the best month ever on Amazon sales last monthand am doing okay in April.  Adsense? Picking up as it should this time of year.

                  Diversification, that's the key!  Never depend on only one writing site as they all eventually get greedy.  Just speaking from experience, of course!  lol
