    I found today this website that has copied several pictures of mine and articles and then found articles of many users along with hubpages logos etc. I would normally file a DMCA, but don't know where to start. If I go through Whois, all I find is that the owner of the website is private and protected.  I purposely put some space after // to not give direct traffic. What can be done?

    I found my content and the content of many other hubbers by typing the user name in the "search this website" field.

      The website is hosted by an American company and honors DMCA Notices.  Send yours to:
      abuse@knownhost.com

      Include the Hub URL and the image URL for photos and include the plagiarizing webpage URL and its image URL for photos.

      How does the website manage to be private and hide its information like that?

    Kill that link. Websites that do this stuff also many times do malware. smile

    Hello paradigmsearch, I did make it not live, so that it cannot be clicked. I was planning to report to DMCA but don't know where to start. This clever webmaster made things difficult, taking pictures, parts of articles and links and scattering throughout so it's difficult to report because you would have to tell Google that the picture is copied from one page, the links from another page, and the parts of content from 2-3 other pages:(

      Cheer up. Things are actually worse. big_smile

      For every site like this we know of, there are probably 4 more out there we don't know of. And it will never stop.

      Actually, it's not totally hopeless. As far as I know, sites like this never get any meaningful placement in search results.

        Lately, I've been lucky with reporting pirated work of mine that's on blogspot.com blogs because the domain is owned by Google. I've also had pirated work removed from WordPress blogs. My success with business-related blogs using my work is about half and half. In other words, half of them comply with the notice while the other half ignore me.

        Plagiarism on the Internet is rife, and we could spend all of our time trying to put out the fires. Except in the case of my best-performing hubs, I don't really bother.

        Jayewisdom, I agree, those are really easy to report and are taken down quickly.

        Paradigmsearch... you are right, there is much worse going on. Last week, guess what?  I found a website that copied my entire website and made it into an e-book that is being sold in Sri Lanka and England! I am still waiting a response from the hosting company:(

      Alexadry, please let me know what steps to take. I found a similar site with my pictures copied so I am interested on what to do.

        Aesta1, you need to report to Google and fill out a DMCA  form or you can find the hosting company and fill out a copyright infringement form.

    Is it possible to ban these sites from HP?

    I just checked and found this site copying bits and pieces from hubs as well as pictures (mostly my pictures) but other hubbers are also mentioned. Here it is: meatloaf recipes.info
