I have just had my latest hub copied onto flixya - a site which I have had to get quite a number of my hubs deleted from when they have been stolen and added there.
This particular thief I won't be persuing though -they are so stupid that they left my affiliate link in the hub- I only noticed the copy because of a click thru was tracked by the affiliate software of the product I am selling on it LOL
Too stupid to be online ...
HA!!! That's funny!!! Some people really are too stupid to be allowed online. LOL!
Lissie that's WAY too funny and SO typical of the losebags we have to deal with!!
If somebody is copying our hub how we gonna know it at all? Hubpage should allow us to input some unique code so we can track them.
If your Hub is copied and posted elsewhere, a little copyright symbol will show up next to that hub and on the hub, it will provide further info about where it's at. Then, it's up to you to contact the site, or if it's HubPages, let them know. Most sites seem to be pretty good about deleting copied content, if you let them know about it, and can prove that your work is the original.
@aniket Anna is right - I don't waste too much time on it but every few months go thru and get all the dups taken down - 80% of them will -the rest arent worth losing sleep over
@Court :-) - gotta love stupidity makes the rest of us look good!
I get emails from women that have read my er, sexy poems I think, and they want me to prove to them what real love is about. Usually I find that they have joined hubpages within the last hour or so with no profile or hubs or fans. They just want me to email them and then I will be directed to a site whee i can pay to watch them disrobe live and chat with them.
I get tired of deleting them. And I just ain't interested honey, so stop it already. I reckon they think I'm a perve.
Hmmm...A new distribution channel via scrappers.
LOL! That's a good one, Lissie! It sucks that your content was copied, but if you're going to make money from them, good going!
So, maybe it's a good idea to make sure that we have an important link in our text, just for such occasions?
Maybe this is a new angle for bum marketing?
lol lets hope you make a sale! copied content is a real problem i wish google was more coperative

Do others think 50 video capsules in one hub is too many? LOLI didn't start out planning to have so many but my undiagnosed OCD kinda kicked in and I just couldn't stop.I tend to think for users with an older PC with not much RAM they would have issues with my hub. Works fine with my 2 Gigs of RAM...

I thought that it might be a bit of fun if we could create a slogan for Hubpages, maybe the guys and gals at Hub HQ will use the best one on the main page (hint hint lol).I was thinking along the lines of:Hubpages, written by the best read by the rest.but that is a bit lame, I am sure that you guys...
