What defense does Hub Pages offer against 'scrapers'?
Recently a site lifted a vast amount of original content from Hub Pages and used it to make money without paying for it. The only response from Hub Pages was, '"file a complaint with DCMA". For an organization that is profiting from our collective work (by agreement) this is kind of lame.
You can react by filing a complaint with the DCMA, Google, etc.
Tools to help you find copied content would be the most that they could likely ever offer.
Hubpages is not responsible for duplication of hubbers' topics as we are self employed freelance writers. My husband asked the same question of me. With the many thousands of writers on this site, it would also be a monumental task for a website to offer such service. We are responsible for our own content. It would be nice if we did not have to perform this task, as it would save time. You can pay a site to check for duplicate content, and some help with DMCA, I believe.
