    Does using My Free Copyright site really help in HubPages Content Theft?

    What I mean, is once you go through the steps of copyrighting your hub on My Free Copyright site, does it matter if you get the "date stamp" if the thieves are stealing on the same day you publish it anyway?  In other words, they can take it, and copyright it also on the day of publication, since they are claiming it is theirs anyway, or am I missing something.

    What do you suggest in using a copyrighting service like this.  Do some people get the date stamp for the day before, then publish it so that once they steal it from the feed its at least a day after?

    I would have it date stamped before publishing just to be safe if that's an option and always keep backups of your hard drives and original files because you can then more easily prove your content is yours if you have it in word etc. by the file date and whatnot. 

    I would think it would be pretty easy to prove that certain sites are using content scraper bots also - particularly when they are stealing thousands of pieces of writing at a time.
