    My hub article Vintage Sizing vs. Modern Sizing has been plagiarized twice. I just file my second DCMA with Google.  If you go to my article you will see I have links to other hubpage article. If I have linked to your article you may want to check and see anyone has stolen your articles as well. If you need to file a DCMA, here is the link.: www.google.com/support/go/legal
    Thank you!

      I hope you informed those hubbers prior to linking to their articles.  If not, this is something all of us should always do as a matter of courtesy, and for this exact reason.  Someone who doesn't read this forum may wind up with problems because you may and probably did link without permission.  It's bad enough your stuff was stolen, now they've got issues also.

        No, I used the suggest links in the hub building tool to drive readers to their articles. You even get hubkarma points for doing it. Not only is it encouraged; it's  rewarded.

        Eh?  What?  I'm not sure I understand what you're talking about.

            I believe what Marisa is referring to is the assumption by the previous poster that it is a courtesy to get permission before linking to someone's article, when in actual fact you WANT people to link to your articles and it is a big compliment if they do, plus a brilliant traffic booster (think organic backlinks). Apart from anything else it would be impossible to ask every site you ever linked to for 'permission' to link to their site. It is very odd that anyone would think you should ask permission before linking to someone's article.

            PS. HubKarma has long since been dispensed with as it was ultimately considered by the masses to be completely pointless. With regards to the 'Suggest Links' feature most people seem to avoid using it now in order to avoid problems with driving traffic away from their own sub domains, and having to constantly remove 'broken links' caused when people delete or remove hubs from this site. Regarding the removal of 'HubKarma' you might find the following thread useful:

              Well at any point, I added those links very early in my hubbing when it was part of the experience and permission was not needed and linking to other hubbers was  encouraged. I thought it was a nice way to build a community.

                Marisa was commenting on Timetraveler2's post, hence why it was quoted in her comment. Her comment really wasn't aimed at you at all.

                Btw, you still don't need permission to link to anyone's article at all, 99% of people are delighted to get as many organic backlinks as possible because it draws in traffic for them. The suggest links feature was never going to 'build a community' though, not least because people whose hubs you link to have no way of knowing you have linked to them unless you tell them or someone else does. All you do is take traffic away from your hubs and send it to theirs instead = lower income for you, higher income for them.

                Permission is still not needed.  Any time you link to someone else's Hub, you're doing them a huge favour and if they feel offended by it, they're idiots!   As Misty explained, if you link to someone's Hub, they should be delighted.  That's why I replied to TimeTraveller's post asking for clarification, because it made no sense to me.

                If you're reading the forum in chronological mode, you should be able to see that I quoted TimeTraveller's post and replied to it specifically. If you're reading the forum in threaded mode, the indents tell you who I was replying to.

                  I understand how to read the forum.

                    Sorry, just trying to help.  It looked like you had misunderstood who I was replying to.  Obviously that wasn't the case.

    Just checked 2 of my best hubs, filed one DMCA against a blogger blog and one for the other hub against 5 URL's...

      One of my real life friends who is also a hubber  found one of her article was plagiarized as well. It's ridiculous. Do people honestly think it's OK to steal intellectual property just because it's on the web? It's good practice to regularly check your hubs. Usually it's your most popular hubs that get stolen.
