I love the new "copyright infringement" symbols that appear by hubs that seem to have had content copied or scraped, but is there a way to make the symbol disappear when the other site has your permission? Several of mine that have "duplicate content" are articles I sold usage rights to.
Or does it even matter?
I guess it's not important, I just thought it would be nice to get rid of the red symbols that aren't from actual plagiarism so I can scan the ones that are.
Thanks for any comments.
All the articles on HubPages are supposed to be original, and not duplicate content.

That symbol will be there as long as those other copies of your content are on other web pages.
If the HubPage was published first, you're not being hurt. If content you had somewhere else is then published here, your HubScore is going to get docked a bit for it.
I wouldn't worry, I have 4 of those symbols and it doesn't effect my scores all that much.
Huh! Something else to look forward to! [He dreams endlessly of someone, someday, actually CARING enough about something he wrote to steal it....]
Try sending an email to HP letting them know that the situation had been resolved and they can remove the symbol.
That's what I did and the next day, I got a note back from team @ hubpages dot com (no spaces) letting me know they'd removed the warning.
EDIT: Sorry, I misunderstood the OP. My situation actually was plagiarism that I had to deal with. As someone else mentioned, all hubs are required to be original content that is not posted online anywhere else.

I realize we're lucky that HubPages invests money in checking some Hubs for plagiarized copies, when it's not their responsibility - so perhaps I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth! However, it would be great if there was a feature by which we could hide the copyright symbol once...

I wrote a piece about Scorpio Sun Sign People about 6 years ago when I was new here. Most of my main niche is astrology, and instead of contacting me civilly to ask if there was a problem, my piece that was on Exemplore was just pulled from the site. I had just edited it tonight because it's a good...

I was on another thread and someone said many people sign up on HubPages, but very few go on to write a substantial number of quality Hubs.I wonder why this is and what HubPages can do to encourage people to stay on and improve their Hubs, which seems to be what they want.All my Hubs were recently...

I would appreciate if Staff would tell me whether GamerGirl and Whitney, both of whom have chosen to crawl through all my output (output which staff courteously restored after I had totally deleted it on my sabbatical) and repetitively downthumb and flag me, have been assigned by staff as my...
