I have just read a hub I wrote months ago here on HP ....in someone else's hub. How can that be? It is almost verbatim what I had written. It isn't the same topic covered in a different way. It is almost exactly the same hub but with a different person's name on it..
Then report it to Hubpages and they will remove the copy if they agree. You can flag the hub.
Which one of yours was copied? Put it here and more people will flag it if they agree with you. The title is fine you don't have to put a link. The odds are if he/she copied your hub he/she might have copied others hubs.
Hi Patricia. Sorry to hear about this. It seems inexplicable! I'd handle the matter quietly and privately by going to the HubPages faq page and hitting the blue "Contact Us" link to report of the problem. One of the boxes you can check there is "content violation." All the best! Jill
Pstraubie - That had to be completely shocking, to say the least. I agree with Uninvited Writer, I would report it. I am so sorry this happened to you.
This is as amazing as it is brazen. By all means follow through with HP Management.
I had one of my articles from another website I write for copied on hubpages. The ideas were totally the same just in different words. And I know it was copied because it had very specific details I had come up with that were unique and derived from personal experience. Thing is, unless they are copied word by word, or have obvious connotations, I don't think there is much you can do to:( but maybe I may be wrong..

Dear HP Team,Last week you notified me that two of my hubs were most likely stolen and copied on two separate sites. I wrote to both parties, and although one gave me a harder time, both have agreed to take the pieces down from their blogs. I don't think I'm supposed to name them in an open forum,...

I just found out that one of my hubs was copied into someone else's blog on YouSayToo.com. I saw other hubs from fellow hubbers listed as well in the same person's blog (Scorpion360). I read the site's terms of service, and it seems like they are only supposed to have unique and original content,...

There is so much of this going on that it may not be worthwhile to mention. Since I know that this site is not cooperative, I sent my DMCA complaint to Google. My hub is copied word for word with all the lovely photographs and even a link to another similar hub. It probably is my best hub with lots...
