Heads-up to anyone with hubs on jobs, interviewing, employment, etc. I found my hub on interviewing copied (word for word) on a site from Ghana. The site is filled with articles on getting a job, so if you have hubs on related topics, you may want to search (using a clip of text in quotes) and see if it pops up.
Here's the site (with spaces to break up the URL) ht tp://jobhouseghana.com/
Here's the info on who it is registered in Africa:

I just found yet another hub copied - sometimes it was spun with phrases woven into garbage content. Not on this topic, but still one of my high-performers.
Thanks for the information. I have not yet found any of my Hubs over there, but will check from time to time.

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...

Is there a way to block the ability to Copy articles on Hubpages? Some websites have this, so that when anyone tries to left-click their mouse to Copy, the process is blocked somehow. The reason I ask is because I've had to report one website for the second time in little over a week...

I read through the forum threads concerning bigezines, and I decided to go and look for content that might have been copied from my hubs. I used copyscape but there's a limit to how many links you can scan using the free version.So I managed to find a couple of sites that had copied at least one of...
