I just searched one of my Hubs and saw a Spanish version so I had it translated. It goes to a site,
http://www.radikewl.com/62401591.html It is an exact duplicate of my Hub. when I clicked on links in it to another one of my Hubs, it also connected with another page at radikewl.com Is this the Spanish version of HubPages or is someone stealing my Hubs for their own use?
They're stealing. This issue was brought up some time ago in another hub. Contact Google and let them know about it because a DMCA complaint probably won't work. Here's the link to use.
When I googled the same search today, I had this message at the bottom of page one:
"In response to a complaint we received under the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act, we have removed 7 result(s) from this page. If you wish, you may read the DMCA complaint that caused the removal(s) at LumenDatabase.org. "
When I clicked the link, it did show the five complaints I made on my DMCA.
On the search results page, it no longer had the Spanish link, but it also did not have the HubPages link to the specific Hub. It did have the link to my Hubpages profile page as the first listing, though. I wonder if those five Hubs will be re-indexed so they show again in time.
I'm also hoping to hear that the stolen hubs have been removed from the offending website. Who knows?
Were the ones they took on a specific subject. Mine were all gluten free topics. I haven't had time to see if I come across any others. I'll keep you posted as to how the DMCA report goes.
There are several things to do.
You might want to check out another forum on this topic;

One person there identified email@example.com as the place to send your complaint.I just sent them notice of a total of 10 hubs which have been copied with notice that they are to remove all of these hubs and should consider closing down the site since radikewl has copied so many of our writers.
I also sent a DMCA to Google about the first 5 I found and they promptly removed them from the search page, but I don't know if that also removes them from radikewl.
I see they have Adsense now. Will Google act on that?
I've discovered that you can report them to Adsense for breaching copyright and they should close the Adsense account.
ooo! great thought! I didn't notice they had Adsense on the site! Is there a specific dept or email to send to?
If you click on the little arrow at the top right corner of an ad, it opens a new page. Go to the bottom of that page, and you will be asked to leave feedback.
If you choose "Website", you are asked:
The issue(s) were with:the website
Did the site you just came from violate any of the following policies? (Please select at least one, at most three that apply) *
Choose the one that applies.

I found out this morning that this site had stolen at least 2 of my hubs. The more I looked, the more I noticed that it appears every single post on the site is a stolen hub, completely copied in most cases (including the authors' names and copyright notes, ironically). I see lots of names of...

Hooray! For months now I've been trying to figure out who to report the "alleged" infringement on one of my hubs where 9 links to ads have been placed. Whenever I would click the link it would take me to an advertisement that required 3 attempts to leave the page without buying the...

HP tells me my article Guns for Children has been stolen by a website called Brutalist Press. The offending website says it is "copied" by someone called Helga Dagmar. HP offers advice on what to do but most of it is quite beyond my technology skills, and some of the links admin offers go...

Perhaps this is old hat and I didn't read the memo, but just wanted to let you know (I informed HubPages) that web host service dot org has hacked HubPages. http : // webhostservice . org/ They have inserted their url into every one of my Hubs.

I just found that one of my Hubs was stolen in June 2014 and published in a magazine. I wouldn't have found out about it except that they have now put their magazine on-line. It was stolen by a slick looking magazine in Australia, and I am from the US. I told them if it wasn't...

I find this all so depressing. Can anyone tell me how long after filing a DMCA complaint does it take to resolve these issues - or is it as long as a piece of string?How does earth does one motivate oneself to write more hubs when this continues to happen.
