    My articles are being stolen by this site called BEST ARTICLE EVERY DAY at  http://best-article-every-day.ga  and then labeled "Duplicate Content" by HubPages.  I have sent a Cease and Desist letter to that site's admin but gotten no response, just continued theft of my work.

    I have also alerted HubPages but gotten no response.

    Has anyone else experienced this issue?

      I also discovered by chance a site that contains some of my hubs translated into Spanish.
      Very odd. Here is the main address:
      I wonder if HubPages knows about this and what they intend to do about it?

        I do hope HubPages can implement some procedure to eliminate this problem.  I have reported both instances of theft to both the offending site admin and HubPages, and you should report yours also.  All of us writers should make sure HubPages knows when our work has been copied by other sites.

        Thanks for responding, jackclee.

      Just checked out the so-called Best Article Every Day. What an ugly site!

        Yes, Copper Man, it is ugly and their behavior is despicable.  They have stolen at least 12 of my Hubs.  Apparently, they ran under the radar until a few days ago when their theft started causing HubPages to flag my content as duplicate a few hours after they copied it.  I do hope HubPages can deal satisfactorily with this issue, or I will have stop posting my work here.

    HP cannot do anything since you own the content. What you need to do is:

    Contact the person using a contact option on the website and ask for your content to be taken down.

    If this fails, then:

    Go to http://whois.net/ and report to the hosting company that they are stealing content and most reputed hosts take down the site.

    If this also fails, then:

    Submit a DMCA to take it off Google, the site will still be up with your content though, just that it won't be competing on the search results: https://support.google.com/legal/answer … r&rd=2

    Personally I just directly go the DMCA way, saves loads of time.

      I've done the first two, and considered the third which I will now do.  Thanks for the link.  I have had Google remove content from Blogger . . . thanks again, lobobrandon.
