Quick note to alert everyone of another site with stolen hubs. I have added a comment on the bottom of a couple of the original hubs I spotted, in an effort to tip off the hubbers.
Is it possible to have one single page or forum thread where we post the names of offending sites, so everyone can visit it regularly to check for current updates? I'd find it much easier to visit a site and see if anything looked familiar than continually have to cut and paste sections of my hubs to search for copies.
Here's the most recent site I spotted. Many of the stolen hubs were added to it in January 2013. Worth looking at it if your stats have dropped.
STOLENhealthforpeoples.com ... with the word STOLEN removed.
Added to my awatch list. I'm new but I will definitely keep an eye out. Thanks for the heads up. Copy +paste..... Way easier than using your brain. Since it's mainly from China and other countries im guessing there's nothing we can do about it...I'm a newbie so any insight on this would be nice.
The article on the homepage is a Hub stolen in June. Here's a list of topics on that site:
Aging and Longevity
Alternative and Natural Medicine
Astrology and Metaphysics
Death and Loss of Life
Diet and Weight Loss
Disabilities and the Disabled
Diseases, Disorders and Conditions
Exercise and Fitness
Female Reproductive Health
Fertility and Reproductive Systems
Health Care, Drugs and Insurance
Male Depression and Mental Health
Male Genital Issues
Male Reproductive and Urinary Health
Personal Health Information and Self-Help
Quality of Life and Wellness
Stress Management for Men
The Role of Religion in History and Society
Vision and Eye Care
This site has been flagged up before - it's one of the 16 or os sites scraping our content, operated by one guy in China. One of the latest threads is here:
I'll keep asking for one of these threads to be stickied - it's around two months since the original sites were discovered and people are still not aware of them.
I just found one of mine on getting children to read on familywithparenting[dot]com which now appears to be hosted with webexxpurts.com
I found one of my articles and guess what. The idiot has my name on it. In bold letters "Â© Carolee D. Samuda, All Rights Reserved".
I used to place this copyright under the title of my hubs and the idiot copied everything....lol
Mine included the same and he/she even linked it to my photography business page.
Nothing of mine has been stolen yet, that I know of, but is there anything that can be done if it happens? I'm sure it's bound to eventually...

This obviously seems to be an ongoing problem, but I'm new and this is my first time hearing about it. Do the stolen hubs ever get taken off of his site?
The host is not replying to DMCA's - he's a crook.

Oh, I am SO over having my hubs stolen. The internet is peppered with my work. The vast majority of my traffic comes from google in a number of different countries which is great ... but my stats are dropping and I could turn chasing thieves into a full time occupation.
I have a couple of websites that I don't actively use, but I'm thinking I'll start writing on them instead of here and see if they manage to be less popular with the thieves.
I've had lots of issues with: XXXhealthylivingbox.net
Remove the XXX.
Reported this site in this thread: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/115069
So far, only 8 hubbers have filed DMCAs with Google. Similarly, few have filed against rank08 or cararticle. I guess people are not interested due to the drop in traffic. It's worth pointing out that some of these sites, in some instances, are outranking hubs - which isn't helping the traffic situation.
Yep. Them too.
And what's the go with "freedom's phoenix" site? They come up with my hubs in google. When you click on the link you get to taken to their site. When you click to read the full story you get redirected back to HP. I've had 30 visits from them in my stats.

So are we supposed to be complaining about them too? Or is their approach 'legal' and somehow considered helpful? I'm toying with the idea of writing to their admin people but the whole process is just becoming a right pain.
Just found that some of my hubs are now showing on cararticle (they weren't last week!), so I shall be filing a DMCA.

I was wondering why there were only 20 page views on two of awordlover's newest hubs and I just found out why. The same day they were published, they were copied to the following website. I just got done filing with Blogger since they own the site this guy --Aaron Wong -- is putting...

I found out this morning that this site had stolen at least 2 of my hubs. The more I looked, the more I noticed that it appears every single post on the site is a stolen hub, completely copied in most cases (including the authors' names and copyright notes, ironically). I see lots of names of...

After reading the other forums on copied hubs, I ran a check on several of mine. I found two at:http://the-alps (dot) us/and I suspect there are lots of other hubbers' hubs there. A quick search found a hub by Admiral Murrah, but there are many articles on the site, obviously copied. Also one hub...

I have copied the list of 'recent posts' on a site called holidaySTOLENworlds.net (with the world STOLEN removed because I don't want to provide a link to their site.)My article titled 'Why Children Should Be Taught to Tell Lies' has been on their site since February. The bottom of the page...
