How can a writer authenticate originality of a piece?
I wrote an entirely unique and original piece on Princess Diana's death. Today, HP removed it as a "duplicate". Other than the lyrics to Elton John's Candle in the Wind, which I posted in closing, EVERYTHING was original. I have removed the lyrics, but the "duplicate" notice is still there. At this point, what do I do?
You can use an online resource like copyscape to prove that is original, and then send in a help ticket so someone can manually fix it I guess.
Did you post your Hub to any other sites like perhaps your own webpage or another blog?
I have not posted it anywhere else. I've posted HP links on Facebook, and it's been tweeted and shared, but other than that -- no.
