If you're like me, you've had a few notifications through about your hubs being copied elsewhere. there are a few ways to find out who is copying your hubs so that you can file a DMCA takedown against them, but one of the quickest and easiest ways is by using a free online service called CopyScape.
You can go along to http://www.copyscape.com/ and in the box at the top put the web address of your hub. CopyScape will then scan the web and tell you of the pages that have content that is substantially similar to yours.
You can then click through to those sites and CopyScape will highlight the copied text for you. Once you've done that, you can approach the publishers and ask them to take the copy down or file a DMCA takedown request with Google, here: https://support.google.com/legal/answer … n&rd=2
I hope this saves you some time.
Very useful but talk about opening up a can of worms, I hardly dared look as the first try revealed a stolen hub, well about forty three percent of it - though I can't seem to work out who to file a DMCA with. http://aislinthemesxxxcom/nike-free-run-how-to-wet-felt-slippers-on-aqua-shoes-to-get-a-perfect-fit/ I have placed XXX where a dot should be.
Thank you, Paul! I am sure that will come in handy for most of us. I bookmarked it on my computer, for future reference.
I have used copyscape free version occasionally when I'm notified and when I'm trying to find out why my views are low. Most of the copied material consists of a sentence here parts of paragraphs and the site is hidden.
I agree its like opening a can of worms...
I had forgotten about this website - thank you !
Someday, I'll get to that as well.
Never enough time or energy... in a day
It is always good to be reminded of a great site like CopyScape.
Thank you, Paul.

We all appreciate that it's our own responsibility to protect our own work, but it's a big job, and it's in HubPages interest to help us, because plagiarism affects the whole site's income.On another thread, there have been several suggestions of features HubPages could add. So far we have:-...

How on earth would anyone find out if ones hubs are being reused? For example Isabella found her hub copied and pasted on another site. Checking this out I saw quite a few on that chickies site that I've seen and had read on hubpages such as Jimmy's, rb101182's, VioletSun just to mention a few....

There is so much of this going on that it may not be worthwhile to mention. Since I know that this site is not cooperative, I sent my DMCA complaint to Google. My hub is copied word for word with all the lovely photographs and even a link to another similar hub. It probably is my best hub with lots...
