    Why does HP automatically delete duplicated content without establishing who published it first?

    Awhile back I had an incident where someone copied one of my hubs and posted it on another site (without) my permission or giving me credit. HP sent me a notification informing me they were going to delete my hub if (I) did not make significant changes! I ended up sending the other site a request to remove my work from their site after HP told me where I could find it. Why should "the originator" of content have to jump through any hoops? It seems it would be so simple to compare the publication dates! Would you make Leonardo da Vinci repaint the Mona Lisa because someone else copied it?

    Had you by chance edited it by unpublishing and then republishing it at any time? If so, the edit date shows as the publish date, which can be very frustrating.

    Otherwise, I have no idea. I have received duplicate notifications here only one time and it was as above. Most times, people plagiarize my content and I never get a notice, I find it myself.  Also frustrating.

      No, In this instance my hub was completely copied and pasted on another website I had never heard of! They did remove it after I contacted them. A writer shouldn't have to periodically police the web to see if their work has bee posted elsewhere.

      I agree, unfortunately, that's kind of how it is sadly.

    I know what you mean!  I used to blog elsewhere before learning about HP.  I wrote about a few blogs that I found published on here.  And I'm talking about personal stories of my recent illnesses.  (Like who would want to be me anyway!?)  My only saving grace was that my blog was date stamped from like one year or more ago.  The hubs started popping up within weeks after I joined here.  As if someone found my blog and started copying them to here!  Weird in my opinion.

    The problem with Hubs is that when they are updated, the date changes.  I published a Hub in June 2013.  But then I made changes to it in July 2013.  It shows the July date.

      Actually on your profile page if you move your mouse over your user name a drop down menu appears. Click on (my account) and it will list your hubs. You'll see the (original date) you published them and the last date you changed them. HP knows!
