I asked a question on a post that I felt like investigating on my own. It was regarding Google Chrome extensions and whether or not anyone had ever tried any extensions that could check for copied content. I just found one I wanted to share with all Chrome users. It is called PlagSpotter Duplicate Content Checker and although I just downloaded it, it has great reviews.
Extension description "PlagSpotter (www.plagspotter.com) is a duplicate content detection and monitoring tool. Our Chrome app allows users to easily and quickly conduct a duplicate content check by checking the page that the user is currently on for duplicate content. The app will return the results showing the duplicate content % as well as the list of all external sites/sources that duplicate the current page. There is also a way to view a detailed report for each URL as well."
Awesome, Kathleen. Thank you for sharing this cool tool!
Question Kathleen: Is there any malware, virus, etc. that downloads with it?
So, I try out this tool. The first hub I try has 10 places it has been copied. I just took care of all the sites it was on a month ago.
II'm spending more time taking care of copied content than writing. What is the deal with so much copied content? We didn't always have such a problem.

Got a bunch of duplicate content warnings and I am not sure if Hubpages found duplicate content in my Hubs or on the web. If Hubpages finds duplicate content, how hard is it for them to share with us where they found it and what exactly they found? It sure would save and lot of time and...

I just wrote a quotes hub and it says duplicate content - which I can understand as probably 80 % of the hub is quotes copied and pasted from the internet. However is this normal for quotes hubs and do you ask for the duplicate content penalty to be removed or just carry on and ignore it!

Just now I saw a hub that was copied from that of mine. I had published it on 27th Feb. The same hub is being published with a little changes here and there. What should I do? Any help would be highly appreciated.
