I've had two hubs copied. The first one I never heard back from the moderators about getting the article removed and it is still up.

Go to whois.com, copy in the URL and find out the domain name registration.You can find hubs on this topic too.
I wish you well.

I know it's been brought up a few times, but I can't remember a comment from HubPages.Is there anyway that we can get the Copied Hubs section updated? Once the copied pages are removed, they remain. Yes, we can delete the link, but the title remains forever, making it hard to see what is what on a...

I have quite a few notices of copied hubs. Quite a few of them have been removed after sending DMCA notices. Others have also been removed over time, probably due to other people's efforts. Yet they still appear as copied hubs. Is there any way that we can delete these...
