The copyright symbol has finally disappeared from my Olympic torch relay hub. As I mentioned before, it was posted on another site in China. I went in and changed a lot of it and added content and now it is not flagged as a duplicate anymore. Let's hope it stays that way...
That is good news but too bad you had to change your own artilce instead of the offender removing his.
First - good news UW
Second - you can copyright hubs? I did so much button pushing (I'm an instructions weirdo) when I joined I honestly missed that.
So much for my ability to follow instructions.
Actually, the copyright symbol shows up on your "My Hubs" page, and it usually means that someone has published your hub elsewhere.
UW, I think it's sad that you had to rewrite your own work to avoid dup content. I think these plagiarists need a serious smack in the head!
All your hubs are copyrighted by you as soon as you publish them.
I'm talking about the copyright symbol that appears on the "my account" page when your hub has been published somewhere else.
Ahhh. Never had that. Strange though because I've had work copied.
I agree A lot of this hub will be rewritten every two years anyway to reflect the current or coming Olympic Games.
I must say, I admire your positive outlook on the situation. Even though you are the "victim" you dealt with the situation in a way that finally worked out.
I am very sorry to hear they stole your article.
For sites that aren't running AdSense and who aren't honoring your NOI emails, you can contact Google and have pages that are stolen blocked/removed from the search index.

Few hubbers are stealing the content of other hubbers and posting it on other sites by different usernames. I have published a hub on 20th August and within few hours this material was posted on blogspot by someone just...

If any content of the hub is being copied by someone and used elsewhere, its not the fault of hubber. This is nice that HP is motivating hubbers to file DMCA to the concerned site and take appropriate action,who is...

Someone here at HubPages has copied one of my articles. It was actually HubPages that added a copyright symbol letting me know. I flagged and notified HubPages of this but the story is still up. Why would I have to file...
