I am looking for suggestions on what I CAN do and how best to handle this:
I found my article on another website- http://www.flixya.com/post/LifeFlight/1 … our_Health
I joined that community and am going to make a post about it-
I am not sure what the laws are or how they are enforced.
I want to send a clear and firm message -
I thought it best to consult other Hubbers who have already been through this.
edit- is this called copyright enfringement or plagarism?
Send a message to the author and demand removal or proper attribution. If they don't comply, file DMCA claim with the site administration. Usually this is enough.
Welcome to the club
I sure hope my message does the trick. It would really piss me off to spend my time going after these bozos. I didn't know what DMCA was so I googled it and am leaving the link for others
It costs money to file a complaint.
EDIT- OMG it looks like it costs money for a copyright too!
Hey- does this club have an fringe benefits?
I saw others talking about discovering it so I did some googling-
It worked beautifully.
I checked your Hubnugget article
http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-keep-you … l-the-time
and it was safe- for now.
It takes a small person to plagiarize.
1. I am glad I caught it and can now keep tabs for them later.
2. I can now correctly spell plagiarism!
I just emailed the editor of Hubpages the other day about the same thing. I wrote a poem years ago and had it on a myspace blog before. and then now I went to post a hub with it and it came up Duplicate. It turns out a ton of people copied my poem and posted it as their own. I resolved it on hubpages but it would take alot to get it off all of those sites....it spread like wildfire.
I never realized I must write some good stuff..LOL
But I was still pissed off about it!
I guess what Misha suggested is right. Demand total removal, rather than just plain attribution. Even with attribution(and hopefully a backlink), it will remain duplicate content. This should work. If it does not, the make a comment that it is copied, with a link back to your original work. If possible, flag the article
Gone through it and it certainly doesn't feel good, that is why I have copyrights on 99.9% of my work , it helps some.
Can you be so kind as to tell me how you obtain a legitimate copyright on every piece of work ??? thanks!

If I have an article on another website. but I rewrite it and give it a different title, does it count as a new article? I have changed about 1/4 of it. Thank you.
