I have found that somebody has copied the complete content of 1 of my hubpages.Could you tell me...
what I can do about this? Thanks
The help guide says to try and contact the person first. If that doesn't work, then follow the link below to file a complaint.
I had the exact same thing happen to me. I am very sorry to hear it happened to you. I emailed the Hub team and they were so kind as to help me by emailing the site the stolen work was posted at as I could not get my email to go through to them. The site pulled the work quickly. I did a hub on this topic and many of the comments contained from other Hubbers offered great suggestions such as contacting the ad source co., emailing the CEO of the host sight, and other useful tips. I do hope this works out for you.
There are many things you can do to fix the problem.
1) Contact them directly stating the issue, that you own the copyright and for them to give you credit backlink whatever...Or just have them take it down
2) Do a Whois search to tell who the web host is, and file a complaint with them. They will in fear of a lawsuit ask you to follow a few simple steps at which time they will (or should) remove the content from the site. They may depending also suspend that users entire web hosting account.
3) If they have Google Ads you can File a DMCA report to Google. Also send this off to any other ad companies you may see on their page/website. Google has their own steps they will persue, however they won't be placing Google Ads no longer as their account will get suspended/delete. No more money from Google for them.
I hope this helps a bit, I wish you the best of luck.
Thank you ALOT.

So on May 12th, I published my article "Why is my dog smacking his lips?". It comes back to me today with a notice from hubpages saying it is duplicate content. This upsets me because I have been a writer for more than 5 years and I hate, hate, hate copied content to start with and...

I've spent hours today tracking down a blogger on WordPress who has numerous blogs and stole one of my best hubs. This impacts my traffic and, thus, my earnings capacity. It happens so frequently (and to so many other hubbers) that it is not only time-consuming and frustrating, but makes me and...

There is so much of this going on that it may not be worthwhile to mention. Since I know that this site is not cooperative, I sent my DMCA complaint to Google. My hub is copied word for word with all the lovely photographs and even a link to another similar hub. It probably is my best hub with lots...

We've heard several concerns about Hubs getting copied and losing traffic and we know how frustrating this is for the author. Google tries to identify the original content creator and show that in the search results. If you have a copied Hub that is getting outranked in the search...
