    Can our written works on Hub Pages be moved to Facebook and other blogs without our permission?

    Is there any way to stop others from moving our written works on Hub Pages to their own blogs or Facebook?  I see this is happening without our permissions.  A poem of mine was put on another hubbers personal blog without my permission.  I appreciate the enthusiasm for the poem, but isn't that plagarism?

    It's plagiarism if they take and present your work as their own, and just plain theft if they credit you.  The terms of use on this site clearly state that you retain all copyrights, so it's up to you to defend your own rights and deal with those stealing your work.

    I had this same thing happen with a travel blog. They took five of my most favorite haunted places hubs and post them to their facebook page and their website, and not give me credit at all! Did they give you credit or a backlink? That could help you in the long run, if they didn't give you credit though...try contacting them via facebook or their website. Unfortunately, the travel blog that I tried to contact about their plagiarism never responded...and they're based out of I don't think I'll ever have them take down my hubs...unfortunately. It sucks, but it's a part of being a writer, I guess. sad

    Thank you to both of you for responding.  I didn't think it was permitted, but I wanted to make sure before doing anything.  It is not good to hear this has happened to others also.  I put my own hubs on my own facebook page, but I would never even think of putting someone else's hub or writings on my facebook page or other blogs, even with giving them credit.  You are right.  That is stealing.   I guess, what other's do never ceases to amaze me!

    Facebook, Twitter and other social sites members will regularly re-tweet or post anything that they find interesting or want to share. They are not claiming ownership, since clicking on the links brings people right back to your hub, unless they clearly claim it to be theirs.

    As far as on other blogs and so on, that is plagiarizing unless you are given full recognition and if the person who posts it does not claim ownership and gives you credit. In reality there is very little that you can do other than to file a DNC....regardless of what other "experts" here may imply.

    Sure is plagarism ... you can try reporting to facebook or the blog admins and claim that that person has copied copyrighted material ... it happens on youtube quite a lot ... you can report the video's on youtube and the videos get blocked due to copyright infringement, until the matter is resolved.

    you obviousely have a date of publishing on your hub which is not controlled by you. That will show them that your material was written before the copy-cats.

    I think as far as sharing of an article or hub is concerned there is nothing wrong if it is under your name. Posting it as one's own on own blogs, websites, etc is piracy. I think most of us have had to deal with this issue one time or the other. I wonder if there is a effective way to deal with it, apart from filing a DMCA complaint?
