Can we get help on content theft from Hubpages?
Do you think that if a lot of hubbers get together, we can get Hubpages to address the theft of content by bigezine?
I sent an email to the Hubpages team when I found out that my work was posted under other writers on Bigezine (three of my poems, at last count) and received the following response...
"Yes, we have heard about this, but the best thing to do is have each Hubber file a DMCA complaint with the site in question.
Please see our Learning Center entry on how to format a DMCA complaint: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/how- … -complaint
and use their form here: http://bigezine.com/contact/
Also, email the complaint to the person who registered the domain bigezine.com: firstname.lastname@example.org"
I followed their directions to the letter. It seems to me that Hubpages has a vested interest in copyright infringement considering that their livelihood is dependent upon the material submitted and published there...It is my understanding, however, that the owners of bigezine are operating out of New Deli and I seriously doubt that our USA copyright laws apply there, but I don't know that for a fact.

Hooray! For months now I've been trying to figure out who to report the "alleged" infringement on one of my hubs where 9 links to ads have been placed. Whenever I would click the link it would take me to an advertisement that required 3 attempts to leave the page without buying the...

I found some of my content copied on anothe site. I put the URL into the WHOIS site to find out the information. How do I find the email address of the domain registrant? If it isn't obviously listed there, does that mean that information isn't available? The site that has...
