I have 50+ featured hubs and need to sit down and go back through them to add the copyright info at the bottom of each hub. I was wondering if that small amount of additional information will cause the hub to go back through the entire review process. I was also wondering if that would cause it to be listed as a newly published hub and/or change the date it was originally published.
Anytime you edit a Hub, it goes back through the QAP process. Bummer. And anytime you update, that becomes the visible date that other people see.
Actually, if you do it through the new copyright feature that HP added (rather than writing the text yourself), the date will not change. I have just tested this myself out of curiosity. I suspect it will also not go through QAP again either, though I'm not 100% on that.
The copyright notice can be added through a menu on the sidebar of the hub when you are in the edit screen. Go to "Display Options" and expand that menu, then choose whether or not to display your copyright notice. If you choose yes, it will use the "real name" if you have filled that out on your profile. Currently yours is Sheila Rae Myers. Let me see if I can upload a screenshot for you.
Thank you calculus-geometry. Most of hubs only need the copyright added so it's good the date will remain the same. I'll have to add it to some of them and then watch to see if they get re-evaluated and then post the results here if someone doesn't mention it before then. And thanks for adding the screenshot because I couldn't remember where the copyright thing was. I guess I know what my weekend project will be.
calculus-geometry is right on both counts. If you use our standard copyright feature, your Hub will not go back through the QAP (unless you make other changes at the same time), and the date it was published will not change either.
Thank you Christy. I'd like to let you and the other people who work at HP I really appreciate how easy you all make it for us to get answers to our questions.

On the forums, I've seen a difference of opinion about adding the copyright notice to our hubs at the bottom. I've been doing it as a way to protect myself from plagiarizers. However, I read it doesn't do much good....

I have recently thought of a way to hopefully prevent other people copying and pasting my hubs on other sites including blogs and forums where I have had a lot of trouble trying to get them removed. I am therefore...

I have recently finished a couple of hubs that I started earlier (apparently one was from 2012 and one from 2013). I used HubPages automatic copyright date on them, and the old dates appear on them even...

Few hubbers are stealing the content of other hubbers and posting it on other sites by different usernames. I have published a hub on 20th August and within few hours this material was posted on blogspot by someone just...

I published a hub years ago (3/8/2012), and recently discovered that there is a VERY similar hub that was published as well. How do I find out when the other hub was originally published? It's been edited so...
