Stolen Hubs

    I have just found a large number of hubs stolen which can be found on http://action  movienovember2013lovein.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/  I have left a blank between the word action if you would like to see if you have any there too..  I have filed a DMCA and told them that this person has more stolen content on his pages. I can only hope that I have filed it correctly.

      Thank you, sallybea! This is growing worrisome and seems to be ever-increasing. Sigh ...

        It really is the limit, so much so that I have begun working on my own site now.  Nearly 2 years here and nothing has improved when it comes to stolen hubs.

          So sorry you have to deal with this...it's disheartening for sure.I went through the titles and didn't see any of mine(hopefully stays that way)
          They started lifting movie reviews, then health hubs and lastly beauty hubs.
          What's next? roll

      Sally, I am so sorry that this has happened and continues to happen to you.
      It's your own fault because you have such terrific instructional hubs.  If you
      published just a shade above mediocre, like myself, no one who be interested in your hubs.  Start writing love poems and your troubles will be over.
      My best to you,
      DJ.

        That is such a nice thing to say.  It certainly makes one feel a little despondent to have you writing nicked so often.  Add the depressing stats situation to that and it can feel like a long road to nowhere.   I have been waiting for a week to see if I have finally hit the 100,000 hits mark - not a sign of a message in my inbox and no move on the stats!!   Perhaps next week will be set to improve.
        I feel privileged to have had some success here, just wish it was not so much effort,  for so little financial gain.  It is people like you though who make these pages a nice place to be:)  Thank you.
        Best wishes to you too.
        Sally

    I checked the site and saw some articles about wet felt which I remember reading here. It is troubling to give that bogus site the views by going out there to check for stolen work. At least it is on Blogger, and that makes filing the DMCAs a little more direct.
    All the best of luck in getting this resolved. Google is pretty good about responding quickly.

      I hope so because I have had very little success in getting stolen hubs removed - some of them are foreign sites which seem almost impossible to shift.

    Thank you for reporting the incident. But now we have a sad case on our hands. Does this mean we need to publish below par Hubs just so no one would try and copy them? That's a shame. I mean, I'm personally not after stats and stuff like that - but having someone steal my work is just infuriating. I hope HP does something about this.

      HP has stated many times that our work is our responsibility -they have nothing to do with it. They refuse to take measures to help prevent our work from being copied.

        Thanks for the comments - yes it is our responsibility.  I just wanted to advise others that they might have some of their writing there.

    Looks like the site is gone. I'm not able to access it this morning. Very frustrating to have to spend so much time fighting thieves.

    Hold on I just got into the site. Will check it out.
