After I remove a hub from Hubpages do all rights to it revert to me?
Yes, I believe that is my understand, so long as it has been removed and unpublished from HubPages, as it is your writing and belongs to you, the author.
Thanks Faith! I appreciate the help. I removed "Too Many Gerbils" b/c I might want to do something else with it. :-)
Right-o! One maintains copyright of one's work on HubPages- regardless of whether it is published!
I was wondering the same thing. Thanks for asking the question.
Yes, absolutely. You have all the rights. This is why I like Hubpages more.
You always own the rights to anything you publish on HubPages.
Yes. This is the beauty of Hub Pages. We own our work and can use it for other purposes, even if we've published it on HP first. :0)
Yes, we have the right to remove our own hubs and use them somewhere else. That is good;-)
The rights don't "revert" to you, because they always belonged to you to begin with. You allowed HubPages to publish your Hub under its Terms of Service, not to own any rights to your work. It's cool.
Something I don't think anyone else has mentioned; if you pull your hub you still own it.
If, however, there is a copy of that hub out there and you unpublish yours, that copy is now the original unless you have some definite proof that you wrote it and when. A signed and notarized statement from President Obama, maybe.
Should you re-publish, the owner of the copy has every right to file a DMCA against you and have yours taken down. Make absolutely there are no copies before you unpublish and that you are republished before any copies appear. It can be a real problem and effectively lose you control over the content you wrote.
Wow! That's and interesting point that we really need to remember and take notice of. Thank you for the warning.
I had no idea! Thank you for the heads up!
But there is the wayback machine to prove the article was originally yours.
I'm not sure how long it has to be published first, before it gets picked up.
I found myself in that situation not so long ago. I unpublished a hub (after checking for copies on the web) and tried to republish it elsewhere.
I got a duplicate content warning. Someone had stolen it just before I took it down.
I used the wayback machine to file a DMCA, and won

Did HubPages provide an explanation regarding why you can no longer easily share a Hub on Twitter using a button on the Hub? Why did they replace it with Flipboard?

When a particular hub is unfeatured, can the moderators be more specific about what is the problem areas which have to be improved. Just writing ‘ Spammy elements ‘ doesn’t help. I keep on updating my hubs regularly, even if they have decent traffic/ views. But these days, any editing (from my...

I have three Hubs about the 2015 Sydney Siege. They were all featured. They do not attract a great deal of views as these are about a local event. However, only one of them has been demoted a few weeks ago.It now sports the " = Not Featured - Traffic" icon. But. ....

This is very difficult for me. I have created 3 hubs so far and am learning more and more about writing hubs as each day progresses. One of the more enjoyable and surprising aspects of HubPages is the community here. It is amazingly friendly.I have been experimenting with writing styles, subject...

I just saw the notification from hubpages, which I appreciate that this poetry hub has been removed from advertising.This is a wonderful poem, and controversially may be a copy of a poem originally written by Henry Lawson. I hate to put it to death, it was never meant to make money, just to let...
