Hello fellow Hubbers --
One of my Hubs was recently marked with a "c" and reads "possibly copied by someone else." What should I do about this? Are there steps I should take or will Hubpages look into it? Thanks!
Open your hub and look at the top where you will see a sentence, usually in yellow that indicates you have a copyright problem. Click on it and it will tell you exactly who stole your work. Once you have this info, you can file a DMCA complaint. You can find directions for doing this in the Learning Center.
There has to be a better way to file complaints than what we have now. It's so ridiculously time-consuming and complex. I absolutely hate the current system it doesn't feel like 2016.
This happened to me too sometimes back.
Please click the following link. You can see my forum post where I wrote about the problem, the advices I received from fellow hubbers and how we solved the problem.

Why are hubs suddenly copied by someone else?In the last two days I have ten hubs possibly copied by someone else. Does anyone know what's going on? Some are Editors Choice, some are not. It is difficult to find the duplicates.

I like the new improved look of the stolen hubs link. Thanks, HubPages.I just wish it were more helpful sometimes! It can be so difficult to file a DMCA. It can take so much effort to track down the thieves, Sigh!

My Hub may have been copied on another siteNot only one hub but three hubs at the same time. I get early warning by the administrator. It said the warning is only visible to me. What should I do? My friends, do you have experience related with this case.
