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.
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.

I realize that it...

While searching for copied hubs on one of the sites already mentioned in the forums, I've found another one. Again, it appears to be a complete copy, albeit a poorly executed one. Worryingly, I found that in two instances, when I searched a chunk of an article to find the original...

Trying to see if I understand this correctly. The trackers only work from outside of HP, correct? So if I have a new affiliate tracker on my profile page or in a hub, it's worthless to me, right? And if I link from one of my hubs to someone else's via a traffic tracker, again, it does me no good,...

As HubPages is strict as to only having content on their pages, I wonder if we are able to take the hubs (of which we own the content) and compile for a book or ebook?I look forward to hearing from other hubbers!
