    I have just got another (C) alert because part of a hub of mine has been copied and pasted with no credit to me or link here but appears at

    I have just sent them a complaint about this. I am getting really tired of having to chase up on all the hubs of mine that this happens to.

    Maybe we need some warning notice prominently displayed on hubs saying do not infringe copyright by copying this hub without permission?

    Anyone else had their work stolen and posted at

        yes, but it was stolen nonetheless, right smile  Either way, however anyone gets something swiped--it sucks. kinda puts a damper on the whole "I wanna share my talent" mentality.

      If you look in your Account Statistics there are alert symbols that get displayed in individual hubs if something is wrong such as the hub has been duplicated or a video or other link is not working. You then go to edit the hub in question where it will tell you exactly what the problem is.

      We are not penalised for this but it is real nuisance I find having to attempt to get website thieves to take down work they have stolen!

    Wow I wondered about this kinda thing ,but then dismissed it as no one would want to copy anything Ive written
    then again Bard what is a C alert?
    Do Hubpages send it?

    Mine didn't show the alert because my content wasn't copied and pasted directly. In my case it looks as though the entire article was run back and forth through a translator before being reposted on Hubpages. The staff took care of it, thank goodness.

    There is more control here, Janetta. The staff of Hubpages is pretty strict about copyright. We're lucky.

    You can also follow up with a telephone call, if that doesn't work.

    Luckily, it's a U.S. site so a letter threatening legal action could also prove useful. wink

    How very boring - hope you get it sorted ASAP.

    Thank you for the info, Girly_girl09 and thank you too, LondonGirl!

    It is getting "boring" finding yet another of these in my hubs and so far I have had 50% success in getting the duplicated content removed from other sites. However, seeing as reporting to Google is not as simple as it sounds I have not followed through with this in some cases I have failed with.

    It's really not hard to contact Google, you just have to fax them. It tells you on the site how to go about reporting copyright violations. I got one removed that way...of course, they put it back up after they found another ad company...

      To send a fax I have to make a bus journey there and back to the nearest city where somewhere with a fax machine is. Then I have to pay to use the fax service so I am paying bus fares plus for using the  fax machine and spending about 90 minutes of my time to do this when the fault is not mine to start with! That is why I claim it is hard to do this and why I am annoyed by it all. To post to Google would mean the same journey to get to the post office and back plus whatever the postage is! Either way it is extra work taking a minimum of over an hour of my time plus having to spend around 5€ to do all this.
