    This loser seems to have taken the introductory paragraphs from a number of former Squidoo lenses - which are now on HubPages. Two of my food articles were copied in part by him and I know a number of other former Squidoo lensmasters affected.

    So if you're here from Squidoo you might want to check this loser's account for your stolen work. Report it to copyright@bubblews.com and hopefully we can get his account taken down. I know trying to stop plagiarists on Bubblews is a neverending battle but we can't let the thieves steal our hard work when caught in the act!

      Typically, Bubblews deletes these copies right away and often will delete the accounts where they are being posted. Reporting them is a good idea, my experience is that they handle it swiftly.

      I just found geekMachine's Movie Theater Popcorn Secrets copied by this Bubblews guy.
      www . bubblews . com/news/4871186-movie-theater-popcorn-secrets. I despise giving him views on the site by checking for my work. I'm going to let Geek know his work has been copied.
      If enough people submit DMCA complaint take down notices this will stop him, at least on the "B".

      I would appreciate that if anyone spots my work copied, that you would kindly let me know.

      Yep. Mine have been removed already and I see a few others are missing. Hopefully this person's entire account will be locked shortly.

        Mine have been removed too--right after I sent in the complaint. There are still many "familiar" subjects though.

          I know a lot of people have justifiable issues with Bubblews, but I have always found them extremely fast and responsive when copyright claims are filed. Glad to hear others have had success getting infringements removed today!

    He / she hit quite a few of us.  It says the person joined Bubblews July 22, 2014 so they could have picked us up here or on Squidoo.

    They just took down the one I reported. Thanks for the email address, Sockii. That made it easy.

    Thanks for posting this, sockii.  Since the majority of the plagiarized articles were food/recipes I didn't find any of mine there.  However, I do still see quite a few [former] Squidoo articles that I recognized.  I do hope word gets out to the victimized Squids/Hubbers so they can get their original work removed!

    It’s annoying when you find snippets of your work have been scraped.  I recently found some of my titles, sub headings, and phrases (long tailed keywords) scraped into old articles of similar subject that are trying to steal search traffic.  You can submit the text and report these pages to (Google Report Scraper Pages) This is not a copyright complaint, but Google will check compare historically, and although they may not remove the page, they can trash its search ranking.  It does work.

    I know there are many negative comments made about Bubblews, but I give them credit for NO tolerance for copied material, or anything against their TOS.   I reported a gal who copied some articles from a medical source.  They were quite explicit in how to improve your love life, but they appeared to just be pornographic. 
    So, keep reporting any copied material you find.  Those people will be dealt with quickly! 
    One day after I reported her, her account was deleted.

    Plagiarism is more in Bubblews.com . One of my posts published in Bubblews got plagiarized. On reporting, they removed his account. wherever, plagiarism is found the appropriate action has to be taken. You scrutinized the said plagiarism well.

    He copied a BL post of mine verbatim including the title. I flagged it the other day and commented (in caps) that it was stolen to let readers know but he can delete that.

    Today I emailed BL mentioning that he has stolen content from many others and should be deleted.

    Looks like they removed my post but the rest of his are nothing but sex related.
