What are the punishments of plagiarism? How can I protect my content from being stolen?
Plagiarism can be punished as follows: (1) Removal of the content from server; (2) Closing of account by hosting provider; (3) Disabling of Google AdSense account; (4) Lower search rankings or de-indexing by Google; (5) Injunction, compensation and punitive damages through court action.
You can protect your content by using a service like Copyscape to scan for unauthorized copies of your articles. If any such articles are detected, you can file a DMCA complaint with the hosting provider and/or with Google. For hubs, legal action through the courts tends to be impractical and not economically feasible.
