HP help on copyright issues?
Over the years, I have seen HP step up and help writers such as myself who tries diligently to add content. From the ease of the capsules to the spell check to the edits.
Yet, one area continues to frustrate me and that is managing the stolen content. Perhaps this has been discussed and I have been away if so, please forgive me.
I just stopped back in and have several more articles with copyright violations. I know HP has notified me and provided a template but I simply do not have the time to reach out to the individuals. Yes, I have sent a kind note and tried but I need more help.
Because of the way copyright law is written, only the holder of the copyright can file a DMCA complaint to have content removed. So, only you can deal with violations of your copyright.
Don't waste your time trying to contact the owner of the domain that's violating your copyright. Clearly, if they've copied your content, they don't care about copyright. Always go to the web hosting company.
Hey Ken , I understand how it feels to see the stolen content after such hard work with your original words and ideas.
Such people who stole content generally belong to the low category .
They want to use others work to make a quick buck without hard work.
Their mentality is different.
I've seen such people who steal others content and use it on their own blogs or create blogs and sell them.
Such people are failures in their life. Even if such people make a buck here and there, they do not make it big. I talk from experience.
Ive seen a guy who stole my articles and created a blog from it and sold it to someone. His idea was to make smart money one way or the other.
His web hosting company stopped giving service to him and suspended his websites. Also he got a notice from google.
Most of the work he used to do was scrape content and sell sites for ad sense by making false promises on his site about ad sense sites and how it can make them rich.
Just trust your work and be happy .
Trust yourself, Conscience is everything !
Warn the person who stole your work and inform the concerned web hosting company with proof .
It will work out to your advantage.
Hope this helps.

Should HubPages do more to check for copyright violations in hubs?Hub Hopping isn't the answer. Flagging violations may help increase a Hubber's score, which may, in turn, increase their visibility on HP, but this...
