    I came across a site that has stolen one of my Hubs, and some from other HubPages authors as well.
    The site is http:// XXX www.petsworld.us/author/admin/
    (remove XXX and space)

    My hub is the one about cat claw caps, the 4th one on the page.  I checked the 3rd one on the page, and it is also stolen from another author on HubPages.  I suspect most or all of these could be stolen from HubPages.  What to do?

      Funny how the person running that site has a copyright at the bottom of the page.

      Thanks all for the advice and commiseration.  Yes, they left my copyright notice at the bottom on the copy of my Hub, and yes, they stole my original pictures as well.  The picture of my cat was what first tipped me off that it was stolen content...

    That's just terrible!  I noticed that they stole also your pictures!  Some people have no respect for the work of others!  I hope that you can get your article removed from that site!  Good luck!

      Thanks again for the advice and support.  I have requested that the stolen content be removed by Dec. 3 or I will pursue contacting the web hosting company, search engines, and other parties.

    Looks like he is earning from adsense I think we shoud report it to Google. If he stops earning from these articles he won't keep copying them.

      It is a violation of Google AdSense Terms to plagiarize content. Report the site to AdSense on this form:
      https://support.google.com/adsense/cont … eport?rd=1

        Good suggestion re: AdSense and thanks for the report form.  I suspect that this site has stolen lots of Hubpages Hubs on pet topics.  I'll see if I can get them shut down...

          Go for it!  By the way, the plagiarist's name is Mohamad Samer Tesqieh, of Agouza, Al Giza, Egypt, 12664.  His telephone number is: +20.1120106051. And, you can express your sentiments by email to: profit.armada@gmail.com.  I post this information here so that Internet searchers will find this guy's name is associated with plagiarism.

            Make sure you consult Google Translate before calling, though!  Here's a bit to get you started:

            "You suck!" would be "كنت أمتص!"

              Writer Fox, thanks for serving up the content thief on a silver platter!  Earl, thanks for the translation.

    Im checking out the site right now and I noticed that all the articles are from about 264 days ago. Im pretty sure this jerk stole a bunch of content online to fill up his site for every subject because their are no new articles posted. Geez why cant people come up with their own content.It's frustrating. I hope you get it taken care of
