    I don't know if this is the place for this topic. If not let me know where I should take it.

    I was checking out the Google ranking tonight and I came upon a website that had at least 3 of my Hubs on it! To make matters worse, I was not given credit for these Hubs! I noticed a few other Hubs by other people that I have read. I could not find any info on the site as to who ran it etc. The site is http://www.politics-socialissues.com/. Is anyone familiar with this? Is there anything I can do? Let me know.

      You should report this to the Hub-team and keep looking for a contact link.  I hit the site and saw several articles I'm pretty sure came from HubPages authors.  The titles weren't even changed.

    And another games-toys-hobbies dot com  They have one of my (unfortunately now unpublished) hubs word for word even including my copyright reference at the end..

      Check the forum thread List of sites scraping content - this guy has lots of sites lifting content from us.
