    I am looking for suggestions on what I CAN do and how best to handle this:
    I found my article on another website- … 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 smile

      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 … 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 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
