    I do have the same question. Anyone has the answer?

    There is a copyright at the bottom of each hub, but for the most part no. If someone wants to steal your work they will. Even if the site is coded to prevent highlighting and copying, people who want to steal can still 'print screen' and rewrite the information. Although, coding will prevent many people from taking content, it won't prevent all because if someone really wants to copy your work, they will find a way.

    Note- they are currently testing a copied content feature to inform you when your hubs have been copied, so that you can contact the appropriate person.

    If you post on the internet, you have to accept the risk that people will copy you.  I recently came across Hope's Hub about this topic

    Sad thing is, the scumbags won't pay a blind bit of notice...

    Nope! All you can do is add a notice to your hubs like I have on many of mine in order to discourage readers from stealing content.  It also aims to direct and educate those who don't know any better on the right way to distribute hubpage material.  This is no guarantee, but I do think it might help for people who just honestly don't understand the process of distributing HubPage content.  I've found that many people view this as an article site which allows them to freely republish content - and of course as we all know it's not.  But many of our visitors don't know.
