    Just discovered two of my articles copied word for word on this site http://kidstoysclearance.com/ - for anyone who writes about toys, yours might have been stolen too...

    There is really not much you can do that gets results, I've learned when this sort of thing happens. Its extremely frustrating!

      Absolute Rubbish... You Can TAKE THEIR SITE DOWN... And Smash their reputation with Google etc!

      Apathy and poor advice like your post.. Ensures that Thieves get away with stealing our work! sad

      File your DMCAs and Stop supporting the thieves by doing nothing! sad

    That is why I never bother to check.  No point knowing and getting myself angry when nothing much can be done.

      AND Ditto to YOUR POST sad

      Why should others like me spend our valuable time making sure that your hubs are safe by taking down article thieves, when you aren't prepared to lend any support, or even bother to take the appropriate steps to help fight the cause? sad

      AMAZING!

    @ Eleanor's Words..


    Firstly... Do 2 things here!

    1/ Destroy the link to that site by removing the '.' and replacing it with 'dot' - or you are helping them by giving them links!

    2/ File you DMCAs and Don't give up... THEY ARE THIEVES! - Stop Feeding Them!

    Thank you for giving us the heads up.. you will get some help - but make sure that you Do 'Your' Bit and as such inform Google of the illegal copyright infringements! Good Luck... Don't ever be apathetic with these creeps!

    It really does pay to do something. I went after the thief with an attack. I filed a DMCA plus I left a personal post to the guy under the post telling him if he didn't withdraw the post I was coming after him grrr. I was livid....to see it...it did get taken down
    Now I see I have two more copycats...you better run boys..cause this blonde is a' comin after you.

    I have done it many times with copied articles, I had many stolen from my eZine articles account and I managed to get them taken down.
    First off just message the site owner and tell them to remove it, often they are understanding and will comply (especially if you threaten DMCA).
    If you still get no response then proceed with the DMCA take down notice, check www.dmca.com for more info.

    Ezine articles allows articles to be used by others as long as they follow the TOS.  http://ezinearticles.com/terms-of-service.html

        I did actually mention it in my post above.
        You are allowed to take content from eZine but it means you have to leave the links in tact, and provide a link back to the original article. You will rarely find they do this, and therefore you have to pursue them to remove the article altogether.

    http://dense.hubpages.com/hub/Reviewed- … illow-Pets  is copied there.

    As is http://gerberink.hubpages.com/hub/Thoma … ble-Trains

    and http://pjdeneen.hubpages.com/hub/Coloni … aper-Dolls

    and http://toygamingemporium.hubpages.com/hub/Gomu

    A couple more I looked at were copied from other sites.

    Likes like another wholesale thief, and one that badly needs taken down ASAP.  I didn't find any of mine, but have only a very few that would fit into their site.

    From what I have read, most of this copied content without giving authors the byline, etc, is actually for those in China, etc and nothing can be done about them because of where they are at.
