Are hubs copywritten just by publishing on HubPages?
I am considering publishing my book, Transitions, chapter by chapter on Hubpages. I need to know if they are safe from being copied just by being published here....
Yes, anything published by you that is original work is copywritten but you still have to be careful. People get they're work copied all the time. There's some good hubs on how to check if your work has been stolen or copied and then you can contact the person that did it and try to resolve the issue.
Anything that you post on a website can be copied (simply select the text and select Edit > Copy). If you intend to publish the book in hard copy then I wouldn't post it. If you have written the book and you simply want to share it then HubPages is a good place - I've seen others posting long stories as well. But if you have greater intentions then I'm not sure if I would publish the whole book here.
