I have had this warning on a few of my hubs for some time and, thankfully, have had the offending pages removed from the web.
However, the warnings persist on my hub list. How can I get these removed now the problem has been dealt with?
Thanks for following up on this, Matthew.
I have a bit more information. We are now checking copied content less frequently for all Hubs once they have been identified. Hubs with more traffic are rechecked more often. This went into effect a few months ago.
So, we're stuck with little red Cs all over our dashboards, with no way to tell if the copied content has been removed ... and no way to know if a new site has plagiarized content that was already plagiarized and marked with a C before ... without checking them all manually AND keeping a separate record of our own as to which offending sites were already listed (and sent DMCA notices by us)?
If so ... that stinks. While the initial notification is very helpful, beyond that, if it's not rechecked by the system, it ceases to be helpful.
I have the same problem - I was able to get a ton of those removed (and a big Shout Out to HP for posting the warnings and the urls), but the list is still there, even though they were removed way more than 30 days ago.
At any rate - thanks for having a system in place that tracks down the offending urls - it's a huge help!
I have some that were removed well over 60 days ago, and the little red c's are still there.
Thanks Matthew for telling us how to get those notices to disappear. I will definitely be sending you a list.
Have there been any reports of Pinterest triggering some of the "copied" notices? One of my hubs, which seems to have been passed around on Pinterest more than the rest was marked three times in one day for being copied.
I also have a couple that were actually copied last November but were since pulled through Google's dispute process. Can I send you mine as well Matthew?

I'm quite pissed that one of my high ranking articles on HubPages has been stolen and re-published online without my knowledge. The plagiarist, however, had kept my HP name at the bottom but without credit and...

Recently, I've noticed that I've been getting less traffic to one of my hubs that was previously my most visited. Sure enough, it's been copied. The prime culprit, I believe, is a Facebook posting in which nearly the...
