Good evening all
One of my latest hubs has just shown up on 2 sites which seem to be stealing our content and images.
These sites do not actually promote our content and presently seem to be stealing our traffic although I cannot see why- there's no link to our hubpages so effectively they're just showcasing a tiny amount of our content
Could I raise a DMCA complaint because they've stolen my image without consent? Have they taken enough of my summary to warrant a complaint too?
Anyones thoughts would be greatly appreciated
If you still have time, please edit your post to break the hyperlink on those two sites (just add a space or two). As you know, backlinks are valuable things and you don't want to give these two sites any benefit.
Yes I think it's worth filing a complaint. Go direct to Adsense as I see there are Adsense ads displayed.
I agree with Marisa. I see even Paul Edmonson's hub about search engine traffic is there. No one is immune!

I have a number of hubs whose content has been stolen. I've tried to trace the people and the websites, in order to file a DMCA but I keep getting a dead end - many are posted on sites in India etc. Is there any point in trying to continue with this? I seem to have wasted so much time trying to...

Thanks to ThatMommyBlogger for finding this site and bringing it up in another thread. I think it deserves its own thread to warn HP writers. It looks like a site called 2uidea-dot-com is taking newly published hubs and putting them up as their own at a rapid pace. It appears they have filled their...

I just found that one of my Hubs was stolen in June 2014 and published in a magazine. I wouldn't have found out about it except that they have now put their magazine on-line. It was stolen by a slick looking magazine in Australia, and I am from the US. I told them if it wasn't...
