If I let someone use the content of one of my hubs, how does that square with "duplicate content"?
Duplicate content is a big no-no but the following can be found on the Copyright link at the end of page:

I believe it would only count as duplicate content only if the person copy/pasted your entire hub at another site. If the person is only using parts of your hub in the form of block quotes, it isn't duplicating because there is a lot more of their own content to make it original.

I found out this morning that this site had stolen at least 2 of my hubs. The more I looked, the more I noticed that it appears every single post on the site is a stolen hub, completely copied in most cases (including the authors' names and copyright notes, ironically). I see lots of names of...

I would appreciate if Staff would tell me whether GamerGirl and Whitney, both of whom have chosen to crawl through all my output (output which staff courteously restored after I had totally deleted it on my sabbatical) and repetitively downthumb and flag me, have been assigned by staff as my...
