Why are hubs suddenly copied by someone else?


In the last two days I have ten hubs possibly copied by someone else. Does anyone know what's going on? Some are Editors Choice, some are not. It is difficult to find the duplicates.

    Thank you Rebekah. I actually did find github and I found two of my copied hubs so far so could report them.

    At least HP now lets you know when someone's copied your hub.

    It goes beyond that aesta. Some of the copied hubs even have the comments sections copied. My most copied hub to date is about UGG boots.

    Thanks so much. Here are two I can't find, Wedding Anniversary Gift Lists by Year and Lemon and Diabetes. I found two others and wrote to Google to get them removed from Search. DCMA charges $10 a pop unless I went to the wrong site for that.

    Thanks for the congrats. "Hubs possibly copied by someone else" means some lovely person on the web has taken the content of my hub, put it on their website, and claimed it as their own. Put plainly, they stole my work!
