      Did you copyright your Hub on HP? Even doing it now may prevent this again in the future.

        Can you still copyright your hub if you use Youtube videos on them?

          If it is legal to use the YouTube video.

      The first thing would be to remove the backlink you just gave him from hubpages. Then report his blog to Google.

    File DMCA      Google owns Blogger which is blogspot.

    Id leave a comment on the blog first of all, and stop sending traffic to there! He will benefit from it! Break the link... Comment saying that you are aware he has copied your work, and you have notified the  website, hopefully that will scare him into removing it... other than that, try to contact blogger  I think this link should help... https://support.google.com/blogger/answ … opic=12467 it lists the copyrigght policy, PLUS has a link to the blogger DMCA form. Good luck!!!!

    talk to the owner of the blog...and let him feel your ownership...and yes report it in Blogger or Google...and spread the word... just my opinion

    I did leave a comment, I told him it's a violation of copyright law, and serious actions will be taken...LOL.
    He has copied from other hubs too, and he doesn't even try to modify it, he copy pasted it as it is.
    I will report it. Thanks Everyone!

      "Imitation is the best form of flattery." Now it needs to be modified, "Copying articles is the best form of flattery!"

      Do you agree Amazing?

    By copyright if you mean copyright option in display, then yes.

    Use this form for DMCA notices:
    http://support.google.com/legal

    Choose Blogger/Blogspot from the menu and fill out the form. It usually takes about a week for a webpage to be removed from that platform.

    I have seen that there is a system which forbids the content copying of web page. Could this not be done on hub pages, so that the content may not be copied. But I think the visitors become less interested, if content copying is locked.

      This 'copyright' choice has already been set up for us before the work has been stolen, but if it has been taken I believe it is too late to use for past work.

    It might be a good idea if some hubbers leave comment on the blog of Mr Adoreable Super. He certainly has eye for good articles.

    This is going bad. All of us keep visiting this site => index it! we better stop using this link and you better report that blog!

    YouTube video's don't belong to us, they're just links, so, yes you can still copyright.
    I'll wait one more day for him to delete it, then I'll report.

    Seems to me there could be a method that HP could use to prevent copying a Hub.  It is so easy to do.  I have copied my own to get it onto Word when I failed to do so when I was writing the Hub.  I read one yesterday that had been copied right down to the personal photos, and had the Hubber's name on each photo!

      There are ways to make copying a webpage using Cut and Paste impossible, but HP has not implemented them.   I agree that it is far too easy to copy an entire Hub.  I do it with mine all the time as backup, but it shouldn't be so easy, because it means anyone can also copy any Hub.

    May be that's why hubpages lost it's traffic. May be google associates hubs as spam because of duplicate content. I hope they do something, google is strict about this.

      Google has yet to learn a lot of human traits; however, it will ever become as smart as us is doubtful. It may be a good idea not to allow this silly copycat, with the label Mr Adoreable Super, take too much of your time and energy. Why? Because he doesn't deserve it! Do your best and "delete" him from your mind!!

  16. AMAZING THINKER profile image59
    AMAZING THINKERposted 4 years ago

    Yes, I am flattered. Thanks for the advice. He doesn't deserve it.

      I think you should immediately start a new article, sipping fenny!! Your mind is not for hire, I suppose, by crooks and copycats!!!!  Have a wonderful day.

          Thanks La for appreciating my great idea! Another idea: Ask Mr Amazing Thinker to tell you what is a "Fenny" and how it is made!!

          Have a wonderful day!

              Brilliant!  Now drink a big glass of Fenny and start a new hub. Then share what happens; I would love to hear!!.

              Wish you Good Luck !!

                But it's not in my country... maybe I already have a Fenny in my mind that's why I keep on writing. Thanks for the humor Goodpal, this issue becomes lighter to hubbers like me.smile

      No need to follow Amazing Thinker. You can "think and write"; many people do it, I believe!!
