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

After me saying this afternoon that no one has stolen my work for online purposes, it happened. I noticed this evening that a copy of one of my hubs is in a forum called Spot25. Some guy by the name of Eric posted it in its entirety and put a line at the bottom saying the article came...

A classic movie website copied half of my "Clark Gable Desegregated Gone With The Wind Movie Set" hub. Normally that's bad, but there are a couple of positives here. First, the site does link back to the hub, suggesting readers go there for more info. Second, for my chosen keywords, my...

On a site call "Rewarder" I found the text from a Hub of mine just copied and pasted in as an answer with no link...does this qualify as infringement since it's being used as an answer on one of these types of sites or is this a different beast? It does say at the beginning "by...

I am venturing out into the forums on a rare occasion to personally ask a question I haven't seen anyone from HP answer to anyone's satisfaction to this point. I've just noticed a hubber which only joined around 14 hours ago who had a hub published only 30 minutes or so ago. See it for...
