What do we do when hub contents are copied within HubPages? I came across this:
http://hubpages.com/hub/Twelve-reasons- … se-tonight
which is obviously Cindy's though the newbie forgot to copy all the pictures Cindy used in hers. Here's Cindy's:
http://hubpages.com/hub/Twelve-reasons- … se-tonight
I guess the poor guy joined to make a quick buck but seriously you(best if Cindy) can contact hub pages folks: email@example.com with a subject line mentioning- "DMCA Complaint"
Here is the URL for taking care of such issues: http://hubpages.com/help/copyright_infringement
I'll leave it up to Cindy. Btw, thanks CW for sharing this option, at least I know what to do when goldentoad copies any hub from me! LOL
You can email Cindy just in case if she fails to check this forum. Btw if Goldentoad ever does that then I am sure that would be the highest form of praise (didn't you know imitation is the best form of flattery)..hehe. But knowing Goldentoad he will take the same subject and twist it upside down to give his own unique flavor of humor to it.
CW - I posted the link in her hub and told her to get a glass of water before checking it! LOL
juyuva - i didn't bother checking
Cris, I'm so glad you caught that for Cindy. I got a kick out of your comment on the guy's page. Hope this doesn't mean that Cindy's original is flagged. I'm still dumbfounded over how this can even be possible within hubpages.
For the record, I'm without any good internet service, and my computer is acting up. Grrr. So here I sit on an old laptop trying to get whatever internet juice I can. It's weird, but I can post here on the forum, but I can't leave comments on hubs. So you all watch out when I return! I've been reading what I can and I'm chomping at the bit to comment!
What irritates me more is that he has apparently ignored my comment! LOL he could have deleted the Hub and we all might charge it to newbie jitters!
Poor you! It gets even harder when you have a mouthful to say! LOL Have your computer fixed ASAP! And you know I'll be around when you return - I'm always around (Sheesh, I feel like God!)
Pam- Just a suggestion: Open a notepad or word document then copy the URL's followed by the respective comments you want to write and save those comments for later copy paste (here I guess Copying is allowed)
I went ahead and flagged the offending hub. I'm sure it will be gone soon. HP is really good about taking care of business!
Lol, he's even copied an article by Paul Edmondson. What a maroon.
Ah Cris, thank you big time! It's torture.
Since you're here, I want to quickly mention that I read your art history hubs last night, and they really are super. My old crotchety laptop wouldn't load the pictures, so I'll look forward to visiting those again when my computer is back.
Good job flagging the offender B.T. BTW...congratulations on winning the boring hub contest!
Just checking up on you. Btw, what does crotchety mean?
Thank you Cris, you've very thoughtful.
I had NO connection at all yesterday, and it's on and off so far this morning. I'm having trouble posting to the forum now. Cruel, cruel world. lol! It's incredibly hard to be cut off suddenly likie this.
Oh well, have some extra fun here for me. And thanks again for asking!
I have so little respect for plagiarists because typing your own hub is not that hard. People take the time to create their hubs and do not deserve to have their intellectual property stolen. I think plagiarism is the worst thing a person could do to someone else, you are stealing their intellectual property .
I think it's been deleted now. I cannot access the plagiarist page anymore. I hope he won't find his way back. So not welcome.

We've heard several concerns about Hubs getting copied and losing traffic and we know how frustrating this is for the author. Google tries to identify the original content creator and show that in the search results. If you have a copied Hub that is getting outranked in the search...

I flagged two new hubs that I saw in my feed this morning for copied content, and each of them had been published in at least four other locations?Surely, there is a better automatic filter that HP could use to help stop such blatant spamming of the internet - it's not even as if these article were...

Just now I saw a hub that was copied from that of mine. I had published it on 27th Feb. The same hub is being published with a little changes here and there. What should I do? Any help would be highly appreciated.

Someone here at HubPages has copied one of my articles. It was actually HubPages that added a copyright symbol letting me know. I flagged and notified HubPages of this but the story is still up. Why would I have to file a DMCA report when it's in house and HubPages knows about this violation? The...

Few hubbers are stealing the content of other hubbers and posting it on other sites by different usernames. I have published a hub on 20th August and within few hours this material was posted on blogspot by someone just changing few words in the title. I know the name of hubber but don't want to...

During my morning hopping routine, I read a hub on cancer which I liked. At the end of the hub the author stated that she had posted it on her website too, with URL and everything. I decided to see the website and lo and behold the exact words. If she had rewritten the article it would have been...
