My sister signed up under me and she and I work together on lesson plans she's written to turn them into something HubPages friendly.
Her first hub was removed due to duplicate content. It took a while for me to find out why, but it turns out it was completely ripped by linksy.net.
She wants to send a DMCA thing, but really can't since her hub was taken down as duplicate content. She says she did not post it elsewhere. I helped her write the thing since it takes a lot of work to turn a lesson plan into a hub.
She was really proud of her first hub, but now it's been taken down by HubPages because some other website is copying people's stuff on HubPages.
How do we go about fixing this? I don't want to have her send out a DMCA when her hub is completely gone... she'll have no link to refer the people she contacts to in order to prove that her stuff on HubPages was up BEFORE it got ripped.
Perhaps you could refer Linksy.net to the cached version of the article on Google, complete with timestamp if it still exists. What's the article's URL?
I hear you. I just republished an eHow article only to find it was EVERYWHERE. I have sent dozens of takedown notices but it was also posted on forums where there is no way to contact the staff except through signing up to their forums (which now I don't want to do).
Yeah, that's what she did. The thing is that they must have ripped the article within hours of my sister publishing it because their timestamp is the same date as her. Wish us luck!

I would appreciate if Staff would tell me whether GamerGirl and Whitney, both of whom have chosen to crawl through all my output (output which staff courteously restored after I had totally deleted it on my sabbatical)...

I was reading a Hub on Hubpages, and was concerned to read the advice that the content we use in our Hubs should be unique, not something we've posted elsewhere on the net.I started out on Helium and have nearly 200...
