Are you able to change a hub after copyrighting it on a site like My Copyright?
It seems like I read somewhere, that if you copyright a hub or any work online, that you can't edit it after? Is this true? I know you can't copyright the same url, so do you just have to make sure everything is perfect and plan on never changing it after that?
Thanks so much for any help on this.
No it's your work and you can change it a bit or make alterations. Your work is automatically copyrighted from the date you publish it - regardless of whether you use copyright services. Those are there mainly to give additional confirmation of the original publication date etc. If it's your piece, you own it and can change it as you see fit.
I use myfreecopyright.com to protect my work. When I register my Hub URL there is an option to tick 'Check for Website Updates' meaning it would automatically update information once I change something on my Hub under that URL.

I realize we're lucky that HubPages invests money in checking some Hubs for plagiarized copies, when it's not their responsibility - so perhaps I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth! However, it would be great if there was a feature by which we could hide the copyright symbol once...

I haven't been in HP for a spell because work has kept me so busy for the past few weeks. Upon my return to publish a new hub, I finished my work and included my usual (and short) copyright notice in a text capsule. When I went to publish my hub I saw the style notice which indicated that HP added...

After more than a year without publishing any hubs, I've decide to start publishing again. First two items on the agenda involved finishing an unpublished hub and responding to comments. Then I decided to investigate whether any of my hubs have been plagiarized and copied elsewhere during my...
