    Ripped off one of mine, might wanna check yours too.  It's allegedly some kind of tutoring operation out of Istanbul.

      I'd edit this comment so they are getting a good link from Hubpages. Just add a couple of spaces or something.

        Good point.  Done and done.  Apologies, I was a bit flustered at the time.

    What program do you use to find stuff like that?

    Here is a list of offenders:

    http://w ww .speed-vid.org
    found via Google Alerts. They use Hub Titles to link to a porn site.

    The rest was found by HubPages:
    http://w ww .familyhealthandnature.com
    inserted a whole 1700 word hub of mine in the middle of another article.

    I finally managed to find the owner of
    http:// azurite888voyager.blogspot.com
    via Facebook. I sent him a polite message asking him to remove my content (which he incidentally had stolen from
    http:// w ww .bodymindsoulspirit .com who had stolen the same hub. This guy from azurite888voyager, also known as Vladimir Gvozden replied with: F**k Off! written out in full caps.

    The following also seem to happily fill their sites with copied content.

    http:// collectivelyconscious.net

    http:// www .invigorateyourlife.com

    http://www .ghanaweb.com

    They have all been DMCA'd on 12th of January. No results sofar.

    Boohoo!
    Why can't we have HP content programmed  so our hubs can't be clicked on to be copied?

      For the content copied on Blogger or Blogspot, follow the directions in the Hub I wrote about it ('Remove Stolen Content from Blogger or Blogspot').  Don't even mess with contacting the plagiarist.

    Here is another website that also enjoys stealing articles:

    http:// beauty-personalhealthcare.blogspot dot com

    I sent Google a DMCA notice 2 months ago and my article is still there. Do I send another one or wait longer?

    Hi Sam,
    Check your Webmaster DMCA dashboard:
    https: //www.google.com/webmasters/tools/dmca-dashboard?hl=en&pid=0

    If it says "rejected", it is because the offending site is a Google blogspot blog. Maybe that is why nothing has happened for two months?
    http://s2.hubimg.com/u/12129301.jpg
    For Google blogspot blogs you do not send DMCA notice  to Webmaster Tools. Report alleged copyright infringement Blogger at:

    https: //support.google.com/legal/contact/lr_dmca?product=blogger

    As soon as you've done that you receive a confirmation email.

    Hi Sue,

    Yes, I did report it to Google for being on a Blogspot Blog. I looked back and it was only 1 month ago today. I have no idea how long to wait before I send another one. I got the original reply from Google and nothing since. Here was their message to me when I filed:

    Thanks for reaching out to us!

    We have received your legal request. Google will only email you about this 
    notice if we need additional clarification. If we comply with your notice 
    in full and do not receive a counternotice, you will not receive any 
    further emails about it from Google.

    Regards,
    The Google Team

    Exactly. Is it normal for it to take that long? I don't know, I new at this DMCA lark.

    Once a DMCA notice has been approved, how long does it take for the material to be removed from the offending sites?

      It varies a lot.  Sometimes it takes a month or more, sometimes it's a few days.

    I've just logged onto my account this morning and seen around 20 little red 'c's on my stats page. Never had some much as one before now. Just had a quick look and yes indeed there is my entire hub compied word for word on another site. Very annoying and i don't have time right now to do anything about it.
