    How could we make our hubs protected from copying by others?

    I am new to HubPages and I want to know; if we can protect our hubs from copying by others.

    They Automatically are by rights. Nobody else can use it in their hubs. But when it comes to articles outside of Hubpages I can't say but I do know you can't copy somebody else's hub as your own.

    Hope this helped

      Thanks Michael Germanotta, for your valuable comment. I could have more precise about articles; i am afraid if someone could copy our articles and use them outside of Hubpages!

      Thanks for the follow, I think it's a problem for everyone maybe Hubpages will create a copyright system but they have no control over other websites. Hopefully they can disable Copy & Paste on Hubpage maybe that's a way to control it.

    The reality of online publishing is that if someone can read your content, then they have a copy of it in their browser.
    Some sites disable copying of web content manually using javascript, but this can easily be circumvented and really only has an effect on people who are trying to copy segments for their own legitimate use.

    Most problematic copying is done by bots and all they need to do is "view source".

    As Michael mentioned, your original content is protected under the US DMCA. So you can file an infringement notice if this occurs.
