There are about 8 or so copied hubs symbols on my account this morning. Upon following one of the links I found my hub but it was spun. You can tell it's my hub but they used a software to change some of the words.
How do file the DCMA for that? Can someone from staff help me please?
Also, how the hell do I file a report for an article that have been placed in full on the "About" section of a YouTube video page. I think these people who do this, have a vendetta against me o something.
@Cardisa I'm honestly not sure how the spun article and the DMCA would work together. If it contains enough of your content I would think a DMCA claim would be appropriate. I would advise doing more legal research, but it sounds like a DMCA claim is the right course of action.
As for the About section on YouTube, Google/YT is pretty good about responding to such requests, so I would try them first.
Here is a link I found:
Thanks Matthew. I tried the one for Youtube, now to do the others.
I also have another issue that I am not sure how to approach.
One of the URLs for one of my hubs leads to this URL and other URLs from the same website. http:// flatulencerelief.info/what-does-really-smelly-gas-mean/. There are 11 URLs to this website on my hub. I also have another hub with the same problem. The thing is, I can't seem to find my article.
I've seen this before and it appears that someone is using the Hub content to get featured on Google, then using a redirect to bounce straight to another site. The best approach is to contact the host of the offending site and explain the situation.
I think I explained it badly, Marisa. I mean, the URLs for the copied hubs, not regular links.
how do I explain it to the host?
I think we're talking about the same thing. They've copied your Hub on to a website (which is the domain name showing as copied), but when you click on that link, it doesn't go to that website - it bounces to another website altogether?
To be honest, it's only happened to me once and I wasn't sure how to handle it, so I did nothing. Later on I found an article explaining it. There's a word for it but I can't remember what it is! I'd be checking out the whois for both the "invisible" URL and the one it redirects to.
Cardisa - What do the "copied hub symbols" look like? Thank you.
As long as there are copied uncommon phrases I treat it the same as any other DMCA.
I had an article spun once. I filed a DMCA and it was removed. Hopefully yours is too!
I have reported spun articles a lot before.

I've recently had a couple of my articles copied to other sites. However, my name remains attached to the articles. Is this still considered plagiarism? Can I file a DMCA complaint? Also, how successful are others with getting things taken down? When I've filed DMCA's in the past, I haven't had...

I'm wondering if my best articles that are being copied can still be claimed as copied if the editors are making drastic changes to it.It really isn't the same article that the thieves took so filing a DMCA may be useless. BTW,most of my articles are on private blogger or websites without Google...

Hooray! For months now I've been trying to figure out who to report the "alleged" infringement on one of my hubs where 9 links to ads have been placed. Whenever I would click the link it would take me to an advertisement that required 3 attempts to leave the page without buying the...
