    I just had the magic red copyright symbol appear, for an article that has been copied onto HubGaze . com. This domain looks like it's nothing but content scraped from HubPages.

    Fortunately, their web host is Go Daddy, and their copyright complaint form is easy to find and fill out. For anyone who needs it, the form link is in the copyright claims section of this page: https://www.godaddy.com/agreements/show … DMARK_COPY

      Maybe I went to the wrong site, but it looks like a Blogger blog. Maybe they got their domain name from GoDaddy. At any rate, possibly notifying their domain name registrar will work.

      Weird site, they even have a Facebook page. Again, that is if I have the right site.

      Also, they use Adsense ads, so that would be another place to report them.

        Good points. I think it is a Blogger site, because I'm showing up as logged in with my Google address when I visit. I'll go ahead and do some Google filing this afternoon, to cover all the bases.

      GoDaddy will take down the entire site if you report them, not just your stolen content, so please do report them as scrapers.

      I got a whole Japanese site removed like that once, after it had scraped hundreds of Hubs.

        I've got several sites taken down by GoDaddy, they are pretty unforgiving!

        This particular blog is on blogger so reporting them to Google should get it closed down if enough people complain.

    Thanks, everyone. I reported the site to Go Daddy, Google/Blogger, and AdSense.
