Help! I posted a hub which uses extensive Bible passages. What I have written is original, but uses the passages to support the other material. I explained that to the hubpages board/panel/chieftains/gods yet their response wasn't clear to me and I was stuck with a duplicate red mark -- ouch.
I would imagine there are others who quote Scripture (which I don't believe falls under any copyright laws) so duplication would come up on passages, even though the information surrounding the passages is different and unique.
I have a hub in which I quote a lot from the Bible. But your elucidation of the quotes and unique material should out weigh your quotes to be considered unique work.
If you need to use long passages.. quote reference numbers and paraphrase the scripture ..so that you don run into trouble.
Using links to online Bibles may also help .. MHO
Duplicate content is NOT an issue of copyright.
Basically, duplicate content is seen by search engines as bad, so any content that appears more than once on the internet, whether you wrote it, hold the copyright or for any other reason, is duplicate.
If, for instance, you published the same article on your blog and then on Hubpages, the Hubpages copy would be considered a duplicate.
The only thing you can do is make sure the duplicate content is minimal - basically add more of your own words to the verses - OR place the verses as a picture so they won't be picked up as text.

HubPages has no problem allowing its users to post duplicate content. This dupe content could rightfully belong to the person who posted it, or it could be stolen -- in fact, a lot of it is stolen. I don't know for...

When quoting from the Bible to clarify a point, or to prove a point, why is it considered DUPLICATING someone else's work? All writers that use the Bible MUST quote from the Bible, to make and prove their point!I MUST...
