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. Yesterday someone copied one of my hubs and put it up on wordpress and scribed. Is there anything I can do? My traffic on the first hub has fallen more than 70% since that hub was copied and I don't want that to happen to the second one.
I know, it feels horrible but try not to let it get you down. Persist. File a DMCA :
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 love the new copied hubs tool or whatever they are calling it. I've sent off DMCA complaints for all of my hubs that have been copied. The copies are being removed but the hubs are still marked as possibly copied. How to I remove that designation or will it be removed...

Why has that disappeared when I go to "my account" to check for broken links, etc? Will HubPages still inform us if one of our hubs has been copied?
