I found one of my hubs copied and badly spun on the aptly named "ArticleSnatch" Directory. It has some phrases completely intact, others reworded and some of it is in a different order. The spinner has given it a nice new shiny title too. So, can I issue a DMCA notice?
Incidentally, the traffic for this hub was once pretty good, but has died back considerably (admittedly a common thread with all my hubs at the moment, but I do think that the copied content could be affecting this one).
Definitely do a DMCA complaint! We have to keep these sleezes from stealing....your creation is yours no matter how they word it!
Yes, will be filing a DMCA form when I can work up the enthusiasm (which will probably be this evening)
