How private is YOUR details etc,on Hubpages.?Why do folk put little privacy notes on their pages?
Isnt one automatically allowing folk to share,and copy ,and 'pin' up their hubs and profile details?,-isnt it that the whole idea of Hubpages?
Any member of the public can copy any stuff (legally),on this domain,can't they?
Readers cannot legally copy articles on this website and post them elsewhere, that's a copyright violation. It doesn't matter if you're reposting the content to a site which generates money for you, or you repost without financial gain, such as on a forum. It is the same with any other website UNLESS the website clearly states that their content is public domain. For example, you cannot visit the New York Times website, copy an article, and then post it on your blog.
Copying a short blurb and posting a link to the rest of the article falls within "fair use." Printing out a hub for your own personal use is also legal.
It isn't necessary for authors to attach a copyright notice at the bottom of their articles since, in the US at least, an author's work is automatically copyrighted at the moment of creation. But many people do include it to deter those who are ignorant of copyright law.
The very bottom of this page and every other page on HubPages contains the following copyright statement, which means that copying is illegal.
Copyright © 2013 HubPages Inc. and respective owners. All rights reserved.
However, if the copyright is for Hub Pages and the respective owners, then why can't the prospective owners post their work elsewhere. I think Hub Pages should establish a time limit that a hub must remain exclusively on Hub Pages. After that you should be able to shop around for new markets. Naturally, you would want to include a link to your subdomain in the hopes of attracting viewers to your other Hubs. Hub Pages has a problem with that. It should not, but it does. I had to pull one of my Hubs because after it ran it was picked up by another publication, I use to submit items to. They included a link to the original source, but Hub Pages said I was printing duplicated copy. I tried to rewriting, but eventually deleted the hub from Hub Pages.

I've been tussling with a particular website for a couple of years now. They published an article of mine on two of their product pages. I've had the blasted pages taken down three times, and each time they've popped...

A simple question. About 100 pages or so are added to HP every day. Recently HP changed its mind, and allowed thousands of un-featured pages to be indexed. You can see the spikes in the stats in the image, but the stats...
