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.
Hi...forgive my naiveté, but how can you discover if a work has been stolen?
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
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:
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
I've already tried both of those addresses.
Go Daddy said that e-mail address email@example.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
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/.
I've sent the details to liquidnetltd so we'll see what happens.

One of my hubs has been copied by this site: "Perfect Law World" (how ironic!) www(dot)infily(dot)comA quick look at the front page suggests that all the content is copied and a good number of articles are from HubPages.Registrant is in China, the host is GoDaddy.

Hi, Team - We know you can't file DMCA complaints on behalf of our work, but would it be possible to alert Hubbers when major scrapers are found in various categories, so we can all individually check for our content?For example - there were probably many more Hubbers affected by the 'Dan Gordon'...

How do I file a dmca if I am unable to find a contact for the website? Someone has stolen one of my hubs, and made an attempt at badly inserting some extra words... So bad!

How about a separate forum just to report stolen content so that others will know to look there?
