A hubber has copied one of my articles. What do I do?


This is a bit embarrassing for me. I am in a situation where I saw one of my articles cleverly restructured with few new additions by another hubber. I do not know what to do. Should I confront the person through a private mail? or should I just let it pass and take it up if it happens again?

    I'm glad you were able to get this person banned. Plagiarism is inexcusable and intolerable.

    Hi Christin, I do not want to report the person without being 100% sure, but if the articles are checked anyone can see the similarity... I also wanted to know, if this is something other hubbers have also experienced? If so, what did they do?

    Hi Maggie,

    The thing is that even with less information you can add your own words or views but here even my format was copied.... I myself can write ten different versions of the topic I am speaking about.. If I wish that is!

    Hi Chef-de-jour,

    Thanks for your response... I actually happened to casually see it on the feed section..... https://hubpages.com/feed/ ... it was absolutely by chance.... But there is a way to find copied material too. You can use copyscape..

    Hi Neinahpets,

    Thanks for the suggestion... And it is further distrubing since the person has been here for nearly a year, while I am not even two months old... You cannot assume that you can steal from a newbie and get away with that...

    I agree Vickiw,

    But here is the latest update... The person has taken down the article... ,Must have seen this question and answers from all members... What better proof than this for a guilty conscience?....
