That blogspot post you mention looks like it was published back on September 10, 2012. If you received your dup warning for your original article after just a few days how could that be possible?
It is the responsibility of Hubbers to protect their own copyright. In this case the offender appears to own a time machine, so there may be nothing you can do to stop them.
This is indeed worrying, if the plagiarists are now stealing people's work before they've even written and published it, we are all doomed!
There's a new hacking program that hacks directly into your brain and steals all your words before they even get to the internet!
It's bad enough having to file the DMCA takedown, but the Violation of Temporal Prime Directive Report takes forever!
I don't know about blogspot, but if you have a website running wordpress you can alter timestamps.
Yes, sometimes I get lazy and just do all of my Wordpress articles in one day, then I change the time and date so they look like they were published on different days. I guess there would be no way to prove that a hub was published first. But like you said Lifefusion, I am not sure about other blogging platforms and if it's possible to change the time and date their article was published. I also publish on Squidoo and a lot of my articles were copied. Squidoo doesn't just flag my original articles but they help us go after the website and get it shut down for stealing our original work.
This has always be a problem to writers. But, I think you can still challenge those that doing that by contacting them.
Everyone, I already told you from the beginning of my post that I've been here twice before. This current account is already my third. So I made that point clear to avoid your mind doing a wild imagination as you did.
I was banned twice as I said, one for a topic not allowed and another for duplicate reasons. I contacted the admin before, but no one answered. Instead, they banned me from the site. I thought the site now is better than it was before so I returned, only to find seasoned writers leaving and jumping boats because the site is getting worse, I guess.
Well. If someone who has been banned twice is now thinking of leaving I don't know what this place is coming too.
I doubt that he's thinking of leaving any more - already banned. What a shocker that someone already banned twice is now banned a third time.
They're probably doing him a favor the way things are going now.
Lot of fake pics on here Beth. Why, the other day, I myself was accused...
No! Surely not you!
Or are you really a fat lady skydiving instead of a skinny guy sitting down?
I should have known you could never be that hot in real life.
Modesty forbids. And a desire to stay anonymous until Google insists that we give them every single detail of our lives in order to write sales pages.
Oh, but he is, Beth, he is! I have a real photo. It's a bit blurry as I was running from the police while I shot it - but you can see all of Mark Ewbie's hotness in it, for sure. British police are so uptight. I TOLD them that Mark and I were bosom internet friends.
They still deported me.
Was he full clothed? Ill tell you where you can send the pic. later.
He was. I couldn't find anything sturdy enough to stand on outside his bedroom window.
Bah, if you guys can't manage an invite in, you have no idea how to use your feminine wiles.
Well, if you can't win him over with your feminine wiles, at least use your business sense. With all these people in his yard at night, it would be a great place to sit up a Starbucks franchise.
hahaha... I'll need the caffeine.
Ive sat naked in this tree for 2 weeks now... Im pretty sure at this point he just wants me to put my clothes back on.
Well then, that's a whole other business opportunity. Do you mind working for dollars?
What am I saying? You write on HP, you're fine for working for dollars
Well, shit, Mel. I haven't even tried that! Been a rough week and my brain hasn't functioned at full capacity.
That's the question I've been itching to put forward.
They can't. It isn't their job anyway. No hosting site can protect your copyright. As the owner of your content it is your responsibility anyway. This has been the way it was since the inception of copyright laws.
In short, if you own it- it is your responsibility to protect it.
That's how copyright works in pretty much every creative venue, in every nation and internationally (for as much as international copyright laws are enforceable anyway). You are asking HP to do something that virtually nobody else does.
Is there a way that HP can block people from copying content? I've seen this on some sites.
Yeah, except that ultimately there is no way to prevent someone stealing your content. After all, even a bonehead can do a screenshot and re-type the article (or use OCR).
Rather than getting outraged because an automated program found a duplicate, you could calmly inform hubstaff that they had copied it from your previous account (which normally gets the flag removed) and file DMCAs with the infringing users of your material.
If it was there before the hub was, the hub is the duplicate.
If the original, owned by the OP, is now gone then the stolen copy is now the original, with no way to prove otherwise. If HP allows it to remain then they are guilty of allowing stolen material on the site.
Arghhhh.... It's just so unfair!!!
Even the Hollow and Empty Content is flogged from here...
Even some of the crappiest almost-hubbers are suffering from having their personal ports savagely and anonymously, opened, plugged into and tampered with against their wills...
Surely HP could provide some sort of practical rubber device to roll out and to help us all control such unfortunate nocturnal transmissions!
I'm sure that Idling hubs is not the only way of protecting us from being raped like this??
Hey Shergs, here is a novel idea. Why not write something new that has not been published elsewhere? That would not be copied elsewhere already, would it?
That's exactly what I was going to say DrMark1961!!! You been hacking into my brain?!!!
You can say what you want to say but for me, HP has lots of respectful people. Good people are the best to be with. I am not leaving. My friend got banned 15 times, now he can pay his bills.
Remind me never to start a thread 'I'm leaving Hubpages very soon!!!' How could staff not resist banning him for the 3rd time? Incidentally, Hubpages staff - if you ban ever Mark Ewbie then I will leave!
(I think I may live to regret that remark!)
To stop any chance of that happening I have written several hubs praising Simone for her style with bows and ribbons.
Praising Simone for her style? Isn't Simone a guy?
I hope not - especially after that post Xmas office party encounter we had near the waste paper bin. I have said enough.
always entertaining to open these threads...
meet the team, Simone loves big bows.
There have been some changes since the last time I dropped by that page...
Oops.. I guess Simone is a girl... lol Yeah, I guess I've seen that picture a hundred times before, but I never read the profile and have never seen the long hair. I just thought it to be strange that a man would be wearing a hat like that. Now, I understand. lol
I also can't believe, but if that is true then this is very bad thing.
As a Newbie, I am disappointed that you were unable to resolve your issues with HP. I have publishd only one article. My second article was put on non-pub status because of a link violation. Even though I replaced the link with a more appopriate one, I was advised that the non-pub status could not be reversed. Now, it has been deleted. I wish that it was possible to communicate directly with the Administration re problems. HP members helped me to resolve my issue by takng respnsibility for getting my post out there by going with the flow and doing something different.
I regret that you have been banned for the third time. It is obvious to me that you really like being a part of the HP community as you have returned after being banned on two occassions. I would recommend that you assess your behaviors and make an intention to change your thinking and your life circumstances. Discovering the role you have played in causing your failures will enable you to experience success in your next venture.
I suggest you start a new threads about your issue. That will help people in giving advice relating to the problem.
Im just checking to see if shergs is back yet. Ive missed him so.
I am getting the feeling that someone can steal our hubs and publish them elsewhere and change the date to one earlier than when our hubs were written and this way it looks like we are copying them instead of the other way around and we are flagged for duplicate content.
Maybe it's time to include a copyright notice at the end of every hub we write but that actually means nothing as others can still steal our work and publish it elsewhere. There really seems to be no way to protect our work.

Should a hubber request an account deletion, will HP send the hubber a payment for all money owed up to the cancellation date? Or will they keep any funds owed to that hubber?

Does any body know percentage rate of hubbers leaving hub pages who have been members a year plus.

I've been with Google Adsense for a number of years now. At no time have I ever had any problems with them. I have always fully understood the rules and policies set forth by Google. I have also always taken it very seriously that you can't click on your own ads and stay away from them when viewing...

On the forums, I've seen a difference of opinion about adding the copyright notice to our hubs at the bottom. I've been doing it as a way to protect myself from plagiarizers. However, I read it doesn't do much good. Plus, when we add the copyright, it makes our hubs seem dated if they weren't...

Hi to all there! I hope that u all are fine! Hi To Hubpages team, What I am going to suggest is to add Chitika ads (similar to adsense) to Hubpages earnings. I'm saying so because there are many people whose adsense account are banned forever. This feature should be added to Hubpages as it will...
