One of my top ranking hubs is stolen by this website: wellhealthonline dot com
Looking at the website, it seems it is built using a content-scrapping software. Which means there must be more high-traffic hubs that may be stolen by this website. I have lodged a complaint with the hosting company GoDaddy yesterday.
Has this website stolen your hubs too? You may want to lodge a complaint.
PS: The infringer has also put a copy of my article on a content aggregator website - PaperBlog.
This is becoming very problematic in our world of blogging. I have tried to file the complaints (first I contacted the authors) and I have gotten no where. Very sad state of affairs and it may get worse.
My question is - has anyone been successful? Who are the good guys who care?
In my case, Google removed the content within FIVE days of complaint. PaperBlog didn't understand the nature of my complaint (all the legal language of my notice), but removed the content nonetheless - in THREE days.
I am still waiting for GoDaddy to take action against the website it hosts.

A few of my hubs have been copied by a site hosted by GoDaddy. I looked up their page about copyright infringement and something about the DMCA wording and the way that the counter notice was worded made me a little nervous. The GoDaddy reaction to copyright infringements seemed too extreme to me....

I found out this morning that this site had stolen at least 2 of my hubs. The more I looked, the more I noticed that it appears every single post on the site is a stolen hub, completely copied in most cases (including the authors' names and copyright notes, ironically). I see lots of names of...

I have a number of hubs whose content has been stolen. I've tried to trace the people and the websites, in order to file a DMCA but I keep getting a dead end - many are posted on sites in India etc. Is there any point in trying to continue with this? I seem to have wasted so much time trying to...

HP tells me my article Guns for Children has been stolen by a website called Brutalist Press. The offending website says it is "copied" by someone called Helga Dagmar. HP offers advice on what to do but most of it is quite beyond my technology skills, and some of the links admin offers go...
