    One of my best hubs has been copied to multiple places on the web, including LinkedIn's www.slideshare.net site (which actually  has two different members copying my article), slidee.com and storify.com. I have sent a copyright infringement notice to LinkedIn, but cannot find where to send the notice to slide and storify.

    Storify and Slidee have a link back to my hubpage. The link on Storify works, the link on Slidee does not.  Is this a concern?

      Slideshare's terms and copyright policy link back to LinkedIn, so I'd file the DMCA with them.

      Slidee.com is hosted by Wiredtree.com.

      Storify.com is hosted by CloudFlare.com.

        Thank you! I have contacted Storify and will contact Wiredtree for the Slidee infringement.

          CloudFlare is not a hosting provider and does not host websites.  CloudFlare is an intermediary. What you need to do is file on this form: https://www.cloudflare.com/abuse.

          Within a few days, Cloudflare will send you an email telling you which company is really hosting the website and then you will need to file a DMCA with that hosting company.

            Oh, good catch. I just posted whatever info was provided by whoishostingthis.com.

              Good news!
              I sent an email requesting the Storify copy of my article be removed and it has been removed.  I received an email letting me know, and when I checked the link, it was gone. Yay!
              Thanks to lisavollrath and Writer Fox for your help.

                That's got to be a record for getting something removed which is diverted to caches on CloudFlare.  Are you sure your content is offline on the plagiarist's site?

                  I had a swift response yesterday from Wordpress about one of mine that was copied. I received a reply from my DMCA complaint in less than a day and the article was removed as well. Thanks to a helpful hubber, I was made aware of the infringement on this forum where it was said that other copied hubs are posted:

                  http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/125987

                  I think when we know exactly where to send/file our complaints, actions are expedited faster.

                    I agree. It is great to work with people who are so helpful.

                Yay! Good for you. Sometimes just being assertive can get things done. I had someone steal an article of mine, and I requested by e-mail for it to be removed. But I think it took close to two weeks for it to finally come down. The copyright fairies are with you my friend.

    I wouldn't have removed it if it linked back to me. IMHO that is free advertisement. On the other hand, if I was not getting credit for my work with a link back to me, only then would I request to have it removed.
