Do you copy-write your articles on Hubpages?
If you copy-write your articles on Hubpages, what copywriter service do you use and why are you with them?
The question is difficult for me to understand. Do you mean "copyright" protection? Or do you mean using a copy-writing service to write one's contents? Please note the correct spelling of copyright.
there is no need to file copyright protection on what you write actually - because it is automatically protected. It may or may not be a deterrent to thieves because typically they use web scraping software to steal content.
Formal copyright would be considered more "concrete proof" of ownership if you had to contend with a plagiarist, however I've found that simply having files with the original date on them has been enough (so far) for me to win DMCA complaints I've had to file in the past.
Some view copyright registration as an unnecessary expense. I think it depends on the particular piece myself.
I didn’t even know you could copyright your work formally. I have had a problem with another site too where I found someone who copied one of my articles word for word and even though I tried to contact the site several times nothing was done about it. I kind of gave up on it as I really had no idea what else to do.
I just put the copyright symbol with my full name and the year written on my poetry and short story hubs. Those are the ones that I am really concerned about people stealing. Then for those who are genuinely interested in sharing my poem will credit my name, instead of just my username.
Anything you write is automatically copyrighted; just like any photo you take is automatically copyrighted. However, I do add the © and my name, etc. to the bottom of each hub, just to be official.
A great web site to check for plagiarism is Copyscape:
I probably start to think about it when my hubscore comes to healthy 97-100 as yours:-)
Talking about my hubs I do not think they are valuable enough for protecting them in any special way. I like what i write, but my common sence tells me that i would not pay money for such an article if i had to buy one.
Yes, I do it here and on my blogs as well:
All work: MyFreeCopyright.com Registered & Protected'
I wouldd like to but i'm not sure how to do it. Does anyone know if there is a topic on it in the learning center?
I defintely write my own there is nothing like ur own work!
No. There is no need for a formal copy write because the second you create and publish an article, you have copy written it.
no i don't do that and i don't even have any idea about the matter. but then after reading some answers i think i got the clue. but then i really like your this question which is very useful. thank you.
I don't personally believe that copyrights should be exclusive or enforced under the current standards, but I understand that others disagree with this. To answer your question, no I do not take any action that would be called copyrighting for my work. Although another person said truth about the DMCA and how it works for writers online, so inadvertently we all are enforcing our copyrights by publishing here. Keep on Hubbing. Blake4d

Just a reminder to update the copyright notice on your Hubs to the year 2012. If you don't have a notice on your Hubs, consider adding one. There have been many forum posts recently about plagiarism of Hubs. Although your work is protected without this notice, I feel it is...

Dear fellow Hubbers,as a newbie (int this issue) I'd like to know what I am supposed to do in case I want to transfer my HP articles to my blog. To begin with, is this allowed?

Is everything you post to hubpages automatically copyrighted?Or does something else have to be done to get my hubs copyrighted?

When I update or revise older hubs, the HP standardized copyright notice does not change to the current year, so I remove that notice to update with my own current year notice at the bottom of my hub, using the correct format. Then I get the notice that HP prefers their own notice, which is...

I am not going to drag up the recent massive plagiarism activity again, but - as you know Maddie - I have found that quite a lot of my hubs have been de-indexed and my traffic here is dropping despite publishing new work and despite actively promoting myself outside of hubpages. I realize that it...

How do you Hubbers deal with it when people copy your Hub?I admit I have been VERY lax on the issue of people copying my Hubs but recently it's gotten bad. Today I found my PET rat article copied on a pest control blog! That was the first time I've been really POed about a copy and paste. So I am...
