    I recently found of my Hub articles plagiarized on EzineMark.com.  I sent them an NOI (notice of infringement)

    They reply, informing me that instead of deleting the copied Hub material as I requested, they've instead opened an account using my name and email from the NOI and transferred the article to my ownership.  They inform me that I can delete it or keep it up if I wish.

    I delete the article as I sure as heck don't want it on their site, and then can't find any way to delete the account they opened in my name without asking my permission.  I email their tech support asking how to delete an account.  Then I get an email back, saying they don't encourage users to delete their accounts, and why would I want to do so anyway?  (they did say if I told them why, they would delete it)

    So then I fired of a somewhat cranky email saying I wasn't about to ever be a member of a site that would sign me up without ever asking if I wanted to join, and please delete my account immediately.  Still waiting to see their reply to that.

    In short, watch out for these member-harvesting sneaks if you have to send any DMCA/NOI paperwork to them.

    Same thing here. I would just like to know how my article ended up on ezinemark. It's frustrating that article gets more views than those published by myself and position 3 on google for my keywords. I never contacted them, they just opened account with my name without any notification from anyone.
