    Hi smile

    I don't know if this subject has been raised before, but a couple of my hubs have been 'stolen' from this site and pasted onto http://yourbackpacking.com.

    At first, I couldn't even find out how to contact the person who owned it. However, I now have a name and address and hope that it is correct and that they will remove the articles.

    But beware!

      Hi...forgive my naiveté, but how can you discover if a work has been stolen?

        Hi Lew,

        A couple of my articles had the copyright warning sign come up on them, so that's how I found out about those, but putting some phrases from my hubs into Google has also resulted in some finds.

        A few of mine have also been translated into Russian and put on 'KaKun dot ru'. I found out about that via recent forum conversations. It looks as if they have copied either the whole site or a lot of it.

        All the best smile

          Thank you very much!  Now, is there anything you can do about stolen content?

            I've noticed that there is a lot of useful advice on these forums at present and there is this very helpful hub:
            http://hubpages.com/hub/Copying-Article … nt-Removed

          The Russian site has so many of my hubs I have given up because I just don't have the time right now to file a DMCA.

    I did a quick whois search and found the following contact e-mail:
    abuse@godaddy.com
    admin@YOURBACKPACKING.COM

    I would start with a complaint to the second address on the list above.  If they don't remove your stolen content, then complain to the first address.  Good luck!

      GoDaddy does not host this site.  DMCA requests should be sent to Liquidnet on this form:
      http://  www.  liquidnetltd.net/contact_us.html

        Hi Writer Fox smile

        Interesting!

        This is new to me so may I ask, please, how did you find out about Liquidnet (because GoDaddy did come up when I did the 'whois?' search)?

        Thank you for your help. smile

      Hi drpennypincher smile

      I've already tried both of those addresses.

      Go Daddy said that e-mail address abuse@godaddy.com was incorrect for this type of thing and referred me to their Copyright department. I'm waiting to hear from them

      The other message - to admin@YOURBACKPACKING.COM - was returned undelivered

      Thanks for your good wishes smile

    GoDaddy came up as the domain register company, not the host.  To find the hosting provider, you must trace the IP of the website or try to find it from http://www.whoishostingthis.com/.
