What do you do if someone copies your hub onto their website?
I found that one of my hubs has been flat out copied and pasted onto a webpage. Without my authorisation no permission and not even an author credit. I have no clue what to do about it, or where to start.
You need to file a DMCA with whoever 'hosts' that website, Cynthia. Lots has been written about that process - here on HP, on google etc. Do a search ... but if you can't find the help you need, you can email me if you want telling me which hub it is. Don't put details of the hub on here.
Cynthia this person has in essence done a copyright infringement. I would contact the editor of Hub Pages,and ask for her assistance.
This happened to me long ago. It was discussed in this forum post. I invite you to read this forum to see what we should do.

A hub of mine was copied on a blogger blog. I saw the copyright symbol on my account and found the blog. Clicking on "report abuse" I filled out their form, and the article was removed in a few hours. It was very easy, thanks to the notification by HP and quick action by blogger.

I'm very grateful to Hubpages for putting the little red C on our dashboards to warn us when our content has been copied.It didn't take me too long to hunt down the content thieves on a couple hubs and send out DMCA notices. The offending copies were on blogspot, so I assume Google will zap them...

Did HubPages provide an explanation regarding why you can no longer easily share a Hub on Twitter using a button on the Hub? Why did they replace it with Flipboard?
