    My latest hub was marked as duplicated.I am not to clued up on computers,and copied and pasted the technical data and side effects for the drug I was writing about is this why?I will have to find out  how to add links, as I think if I had added a link to the page, rather than copy and paste it would be okay is this right?

      Yes.  HubPages will penalize your HubScore for the Hub not containing original content.  And plagiarizing, which is when you just take someone else's work and present it as your own also means that whoever created that text could file a complaint and get your Hub unpublished.  It's an especially bad practice.
