    After I posted this four weeks ago, I did a hub. I wonder why many haven't participated on this topic?

      Yes the internet has helped in the spread of widespread spreading of content against the copyright holders will, it is very difficult to track down people across international borders in order to protect your interests, often it is not worth doing in terms of money.

      The issues relating to content piracy are multi-facited though, it is not so simple as does the internet spread plagiarism, the internet is just a delivery method, it is not the reason it happens.

      I believe it is because you are new and many may not have realized the thread existed. Plagarism is rampant and I have had my fill of filing DMCA complaints, however I have registered all of my work with www.myfreecopyright.com so I feel a little safer knowing that my work is protected. smile

      The internet has help propagate widespread belief that if you build it, they will come. Can one differentiate between organic traffic and manufactured backlinks? Between natural conversation and forced communication?

    So how can we hard-working freshies protect ourselves?
    We're all busting our buns to write and be published, so we "expose" ourselves and our work in the hope of being "discovered".
    I was using the copyright symbol on my posts on one literary site, but was reprimanded by so-called professionals who labelled me a "novice", based solely on the use of the symbol.
    As a journo my work was automatically protected, but how can we be protected through this forum?
    By law it's our own work, but I don't know how we can be protected.  The blog sites can't offer protection.
    It's worth investigation.

      I recently published a hub titled How To Protect Your Hubs Against Spinners, Spammers and Plagiarists which might help.
