How about hub pages puts some kind of security system. That way no hubber can copy other hubbers content. this seems to be alot of people copying content. Paul, can you do something about it?
I like the thing Whitney said about making it so you cant highlight text.
That would at least make it hard.
I vote for that!
yea that's what I wanted them, but there are many other things to prevent this.
Well, if they can make the text get smaller, they can surely do other things.
I am pretty sure this would be very difficulty to do - if the search engines find it, so does everything else.
Regrettably, vigilant defense of your material is the only reliable route you can take. It's the price we pay for the many benefits of freedom on the internet.
Here is a nice essay on freedom and responsibility.
Paul! Phew...I just love HUBPAGES.I sure found the right site when I found Hub-land...great reads, awesome learning instruction, support from so many great Hubbers, and you all in Hubpage Central. Plus free Psychotherapy in the middle of the afternoon on top of it all. Jokes aside that is a great article. Thanks regards Zsuzsy

The best way to stop this practice at hubpages is to leave comments on the hubs that appears copied material. I did it to one hub that was copied from Wikipaedia. Next time I found similar comments on that hub by other hubbers also. I guess this will discourage copying b few hubbers.

Is there a way to block the ability to Copy articles on Hubpages? Some websites have this, so that when anyone tries to left-click their mouse to Copy, the process is blocked somehow. The reason I ask is because I've had to report one website for the second time in little over a week...

Since there has been a number of cases of stolen HP content, and the upcoming feature, I was thinking that instead of all hubbers creating a Copyright notice, maybe HubPages could create an automatic message that shows somewhere on each hub.And for those that would rather create their own message...

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.
