I have sent emails about both of these and received no response - any suggestions?
Yes Svea, you have to explain what you mean.
If a Hub has been flagged as duplicate content, there are two possible actions depending on the circumstances:
1. If the Hub is a copy of an article you wrote elsewhere, all you need to do is rewrite the Hub. Hubs should be original content, not published elsewhere, even by you. You can ignore the duplicate content flag if you like, but the Hub won't earn as well as an original Hub, because the search engines will penalize it.
2. If your own Hub has been copied on someone else's blog or website (you can find out by opening the Hub and clicking to find out more about where it's posted), then you need to send a DMCA notice to the offending webmaster - HubPages can't do it for you.
If your query doesn't fall into any of those categories, then perhaps you can explain and we can try to help!
Can you be more specific?
They don't often respond to emails regarding "duplicate" material. Many hubs are similar enuf, and may even contain exact research or material.
It may lower your score a bit but you can still post it, unless you've completely copied someone elses material, it's ok.
Content has to be 100% originally yours and not copied from anywhere else. It's best not to copy a Hub onto another site as you only get flagged for duplicate content. hope that helps.
If a hubber is copying content off another site you can always inform the original author. However, be careful about letting the original author know they have to file a proper DCMA form.

I would like to make a suggestion to the TEAM here on HUB Pages. I feel that it would be a positive improvement here on the HUB, if all of the activity that is perpetuated by Hubbers, were made known.For instance... apparently - anyone can go around giving thumbs UP or DOWN to a fellow...

My most recent hub was flagged for duplicate content by an automated system. I have read my e-mail, the Learning Center, and the "help boxes". They all tell me, "This Hub seems to contain text that also appears on another page and may be unpublished as a result. If you revise the...
