How can Hub Pages stop plagiarism?
Many HP writers have had their works stolen from HP. How can HP help prevent this?
they will do nothing to stop it as it is off site. It is the responsibility of the copyright owner to take action if this happens.
Hubpages could create a tool, similar to the awesome 'Title Tuner'. This tool could take the text of your hub and scour the net for reproduction and alert you to the fact that someone has stolen your work. Although if it is off site Hubpages cannot do much, and is not responsible, this way they are at least giving the Hubber the option to pursue these plagiarist attempts.
I thought it terms of how there are other sites out there where you cannot copy what is on them. When you try you get a message of some sort saying you can't copy the material.
Many of you recently pointed out that one of my articles was copied elsewhere. They not only copied it word-for-word but they also used the photos of my dogs!
I'm not sure if it was you all who noticed it independently or if Hubpages flagged it somehow. If it was Hubpages, that is an awesome service! One of you even pointed out to me that there is a Hub written on the topic in the learning center titled "How to File a DMCA Complaint. (Hubs won't let me paste the whole link.)
It turns out the owners of the website who copied my article are not in the US so taking them to court is not an option. But as instructed in the Hub article, the website has been submitted to Google for violation. Hopefully, Google will be able to remove it. Otherwise, I am SOL.
Larry Wall, I too had the same issue with an article I wrote about teaching your dogs not to beg. Because I had a similar article on one of my blogs, I couldn't make it as a hub even though I had re-worded it and added more information. Hubs wants original content, which is understandable as it helps keep the integrity of the site and community.

I can't believe what's just happened. One of my hubs was scraped and stolen. No big deal right? Happens all the time and its something that seasoned online authors get used to after a while because hunting thieves down is almost impossible. Well here's a new twist. Hub Pages found the stolen...

I just submitted my second article. I've waited a couple of days but still haven't even receive 50 views yet. I'm concerned about it. I have been reading other peoples articles to see how they receive so many views and fans. But I dont fully understand RSS Feeds, social bookmarking sites and social...

I wrote a piece about Scorpio Sun Sign People about 6 years ago when I was new here. Most of my main niche is astrology, and instead of contacting me civilly to ask if there was a problem, my piece that was on Exemplore was just pulled from the site. I had just edited it tonight because it's a good...

Apparently there are those who do not know what plagerism is! But I am sure they know that copying, pasting, maybe spinning an article written by another is not "Original Content." Plagerism is against TOS of Hub Pages, and can get you in trouble for copyright infringement as...
