How long do I get to file DMCA notices before HubPages does something to the affected Hubs and what is it that they do?
For example, if I go into the hospital for a week and then I use what working time I have for paying work for a week or so afterward, will I come back to see the hubs that are victims of plagiarism penalized by HubPages in some way and how?
HP does not penalize you if someone copies your Hub. They provide the little red (c) just to let you know you have been copied and you can take action as you see fit.
There are of course issues with copies of your Hubs floating around out there as far as search engines are concerned, so taking steps to remove plagiarized content where appropriate not only helps you but HP as a whole.
That is great!
Once again, I'm reminded of how much more awesome HubPages policies are than those of that site that went down the tubes a few months ago!
The notices have been so plentiful that I was starting to freak out, thinking scrapers were going to get my hubs unpublished if I fell too far behind on filing DMCA reports and sending DMCA notices.
Thank you for the explanation.
I've been penalised for someone else's theft. My hub was removed.
I did, however, appreciate HP sending me the 3 places where my work was copied
as far as i know, HP does not get involved with this at all. It's up to each individual hubber to take care of these issues.

Perhaps this is old hat and I didn't read the memo, but just wanted to let you know (I informed HubPages) that web host service dot org has hacked HubPages. http : // webhostservice . org/ They have inserted their url into every one of my Hubs.

Perhaps this is already widely known, but I have just found most of my hubs copied in their entirety on hubinfo.netThere are literally thousands of our hubs there, all categorized, basically a cheap replica of hubpages. Is there anything to be done about such a site?

Hooray! For months now I've been trying to figure out who to report the "alleged" infringement on one of my hubs where 9 links to ads have been placed. Whenever I would click the link it would take me to an advertisement that required 3 attempts to leave the page without buying the...

Just before Christmas I filed a DMCA for a part-copied article. Their 'legal dept' responded in French asking me to provide the actual text that was copied so I did that. Article still not removed, so today I issued a Google results removal, and sent them an invoice for $120 for unauthorised...

I found two of my hubs copied on the website New Health Tips. I also found 2 by habee, and one by Money Glitch. I checked maybe 10 posts and all from HubPages except one from ezine. Per Sir Dent's help, the site is hosted by Website Welcome, with contact for DMCA:...
