I have read, re-read, and re-re-read the TOS on duplicate content, and cannont find anything there to answer this, so here I am.
I have had works published in books that I would like to turn into Hubs. Does this violate TOS?
If not, what credits/citations are required?
Have those works been scanned by Google books? If so, they already can be searched on the web and would appear as duplicated content on your Hubs.
If not, how or if you can use those works and what credits and citations would depend on the publication and publisher, and whether the terms of publication left you with any rights.
I think it would be better if you take the 'topic' from your published work and write a 'spin off' rather than copy it. It is a popular method for new hubs too
Thanks to everyone for the help!
I do not know if they have been scanned by Google, but will play it safe and leave well enough alone!
