Do people copy other peoples articles/ideas on here a lot?
I'm new, I've written two litte hubs to get into the swing of things then just now I come on and see a VERY similar hub to the one I wrote two days ago... is this common? Just wondering!!
You need to contact staff about this if you think that you've been copied. You might need to find out about the other hubs original publication date though - it "could" be before your hub's date.
The staff here isn't going to be supportive of a "author" that copies another, and I promise you that.
It's not like they copied me verbatim though, I'm probably being OTT, I don't mind people writing things about the same subject... that's obviously going to happen, but it had nearly the same title and they used the same analogy in the intro :\
I think it is common and not necessarily copying ideas. It is entirely possible with the number of people on here that they just may have the same or similar idea. I wrote a Hub on saving money, all my own idea and written without seeing anyone else's Hubs on the subject and I see all kinds of similar Hubs on the same subject.
Whose Hub was published first? I think given that the same analogy was used, I would contact admin just to be safe.
everyone copies ideas up to a point.
it would be necessary to spin an article you copy before submitting it so that its not detected as a copy.
that being said, I highly recommend people don't copy other hubs or any articles but rather, try to just be inspired by them if possible

I recently read some reviews on Consumer Affairs, which were absolutely devasting and have got me a little worried. I was wondering if anyone else wrote at similar sites prior to HubPages and why they made the switch,...
