I think I know the answer to my question, but I'm to scared in case Iose any of the work I've put in to these hubs:
If I unpublish will I lose any content?
Thanks in advance.
Nope - you only lose your content if you delete - and even then HP give you 24 hours to change your mind.
I can breath at last.
Thank you for your time SimeyC
Simey, does unpublishing stop your train of ownership? Without being published does the copyright act still protect you, or can a thief then declare that their copy, being more recently published, is the original?
I was wondering the same thing myself.
I'd have to research more - but I don't think so. There is a traceable (either within HPs database or Google's database) audit of when an article is published. Think about all the video games, books etc. that have gone out of circulation - they are still covered by copyright until the owner revokes that copyright. The hard part is proving that you published first of course.
i think you wont, it will be in the section of unpublished hubs )

It is in HP's interests to reassess the policy about DMCAs. For years we've been told hubbers are responsible for filing DMCAs about individual copyright infringements. But I've looked at the DMCA documentation and...

I'm so angry. Today I got the little red circled C warning me my content was stolen. A quick scan in the plaguirism checker showed that someone had copied one of my game guides word for word onto their site. Do they not...

So, I understand I can't publish any content on here that I have used for another site. But can I publish on here first, then carry those articles over to another site? Is that allowed? Cause on the other sites I write...
