The website in question is http://agoranos dot org. I asked the owner by e-mail using "contact us" to remove 6 of my articles and he complied and apologized. Yet, I was very angry this morning that he copied another of my articles just recently, how unscrupulous! I have seen content of other hubbers there as well so wanted to give a heads up. These are entirely copied and pasted articles.
You might consider filing a notice of infringement with their host service since they turned right around and copied material after honoring a takedown notice.
Is it a foreign site? I looked for dot org and dot com and could not see a writing site except for foreign one.
this copying business, sometimes in a different garb, goes on all the time. Its sad but a fact. I really do not know what can be done, for a writer can only act, once he or she comes to know about it. Some of my articles were copied by a site in Brazil and translated into Spanish. It was very difficult to detect, but it happens all the time.
I've found a couple of google cached copies of my stuff that lead to shutdown websites. I can only assume they were shutdown because of the content theft with complaints by others.
Thanks for the heads-up. I went to the website. How did you locate your hubs - did you do a google search or search on their website?
Vocal coach, I randomly search my user name to find who plagiarizes my content. The website has about 67 pages of copied content, but at the bottom there is a directory of subjects and since I write mostly about dogs, it waseasy to find several under the dog heading.
The site is hosted by a company in Germany, Hetzner Online, which is known to be lenient to websites when DMCA requests are filed. But, file one anyway. Use the exact wording for the DMCA request only instead of " Pursuant to 17 USC 512(c)(3)(A) . . .", use this wording:
"Pursuant to the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works, to which Germany is a signatory,"
File using their online form:
And also send the notice to this address:
Be sure to mention that hundreds of Hubs have been plagiarized because not every Hubber reads the forum and the staff has stated previously that it will not file a complaint when massive content theft has happened before.
Thanks, I couldn't figure out who it was hosted by. Just today they copied another hub "Rare Animals of Nepal". I have already contacted some hubbers who are also victims of this.

One of my popular how titled 'How to tell if your boyfriend is a Zombie' has been published on various other sites without my permission. What no credit given to me??? In fact it has another writer's name on it. Is there anything I can do about it? Why is this happening?
