    I dunno but aren't we protected as long as we are copyrighted under Hubpages? I always include all of the dates I publish my work just in case someone copies it.

    I found 2 of my hubs, 1 of my moms, and my sister said she has 2 hubs that were copied. Should we wait to post any more hubs? Just in case?

    I don't know about this website in particular, but I've had my hubs copies at least 10 different times. There is a hub somewhere that explains how to submit a complaint with google that will get it removed from their search engine. I haven't checked on mine in a while so there are probably a number of duplicates floating around out there. It sucks, but I don't think it is something that will stop (outside of submitting complaints over and over again).

    Seems to me that we ought to be getting some response from HubPages management about this, anyne know of any? I don't think the copyright notice in itself will keep an unethical site from stealing, unfortunately.
    I see that there is a comment space on the postings on that sight. What if all th Hubbers who had been ripped off posted a comment on bigezine that the material was basically stolen?

    I have registered my poems with to protect my work. However that wouldn't stop anyone from copying my poems from HubPages. All I could do is prove my copyright / ownership of my work if it came to making a complaint from my side. I'm not sure how HubPages protect it's writers and their hubs in the case of content theft, but surely there should  be some level of responsibility taken on their side in cases such as these.

    I don't know if all of the HP hubs are on this site (probably not), but there is a huge number of them there.

    Even if you put a copyright notice on your hub, people can still take it, as one person has already noted. Also, the fact that your content is somewhere else means traffic is being diverted from your hub and you AND HubPages are loosing money.

    The fact that our copied hubs aren't receiving duplicate content flags (at least mine hasn't) must mean that HubPages is aware of the problem. What they are or will do about it remains to be seen.

    I used the contact form on BizEzine, ordering them delete to my content, but haven't received a response. I also left 2 comments at the article on the site which is essentially my hub, but noticed that once the comment is submitted, a message says "our staff will review it before posting." So they are covering their bases in case someone leaves a comment that says, "You stole my content."

    I looked at the site and didn't see any of my hubs up there though I also didn't look through the entire site just skimmed two catagories, I did checkout the site and registered my website and am going to only do my biggest viewed hubs to see how it actually helps.

    I just went to this site and clicked on articles.  Nothing came up is this problem fixed now?  Stealing hubs is not flattery it's just plain mean.
