False copyright symbol?

    I see a red copyright notice in my account list.  The hub is not in Copied Hubs and Copyscape shows no matches at all.

    So what is HP seeing that they don't display?

      It should tell you.

      I just went and looked there and the Copied Hubs header seems to have disappeared. Is it under Hub Violations?

      There used to be a form that told you where the copied content was, plus a ready filled out DMCA letter to send.

      PS I'd email staff if I was you.

        You are right. That's what used to be and it was enormously helpful.

        In the last two days I found 22 scraped copies of two of my Hubs, with no indication from HP at all.

        Like I posted in this thread a few minutes ago, HP apparently had this scraping notification in place, and as you say, complete with a pre-filled DMCA form.

        This enormously useful feature seems to be gone now.

          As I have tried to get through to you, that stuff and the DMCA link is still there on some hubs.

          But your experience would seem to confirm that their system is broken.  It's showing  stuff that  isn't found in Copyscape.

          So it is broken, apparently.

            It never worked very well anyway. It would find stuff for me, on occasion, that had been copied months previously, and miss a lot more.

            I do my own searches for copied content now, and its not hard to find! There is so much of it, and it usually shows above my originals in Google.

            Thanks Google!

    There's been a lot of this discussion here:

    http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/88738

    Apparently, the old HP helpful notification of duplicate content on other sites no longer works. In addition, when I emailed the team about this wondering why the copyright symbol didn't disappear after I'd tracked down the offender and got the scraped content removed, the team's response was, it will take a few days for the copyright notice to disappear. This was 6 weeks ago, and guess what? The copyright infraction notice is still on this hub, and now there are 6 scraped copy incidents I can find through a Google search.

    HP had a good idea about identifying duplicate content...I have no idea what happened to that program. The HP copyright infraction notice still appears, but with no leads to the infringing party.

      Well, no, I have two there's that are in Copied Hubs and do show where it thinks the copies are. But this one doesn't.

        Have you ever noticed that your first response to someone else is usually "no"?

        What is it about my response that makes "no" your second word?

          No, some of the copyright symbols do lead to details still.  That's why I said "No".

          I'm sorry I have to respond to you with "No" so often, but when you keep saying incorrect things, that's what happens,
