Someone copied one of my Hubs, and HP gave me a copyright warning. I reported the problem, the user removed the article, but the copyright warning is still there nearly two months later. How can I get it removed?
I have the same problem, but the notice has remained now for months! I will say that the site that posted the article closed down, but the article definitely was removed. Glitch?
I have had them in the past, but they went away a lot faster.
Once the copied text is removed, it seems like it takes up to six months for the symbol to go away. I have one that's always there, but I know that's because the copied text is still there. It's in an old, inactive forum, and it's not my entire hub, but a sizable chuck of it. I gave up on having it removed. It does link to my hub, and I don't think it's taking much traffic from my hub, if any.

I have two hubs with red skulls for malicious code warning. My links are to Flickr, Viglink, and other hubs. I cannot get rid of these things.

A hub of mine was copied on a blogger blog. I saw the copyright symbol on my account and found the blog. Clicking on "report abuse" I filled out their form, and the article was removed in a few hours. It was very easy, thanks to the notification by HP and quick action by blogger.
