What does HubPages do about plagiarizing web sites?
I recently had a new hub declared a Duplicate because the anonymous site below posted it lock-stock-and-barrel; that was resolved. I just had a reader advise me regarding a new hub that "Your article here has been stolen and appears verbatim on a site called BEST CONTENT EVERY DAY at http://best-article-every-day.ga/americ … s..."
How does HubPages try to stop this from happening, and more importantly, not letting it adversely impact our own hubs?
I had a similar experience a couple years ago. I was accused of copied content but it was my hub that had been copied, word for word. Since I could not prove that my hub was published first, the ruling stood and my hub was taken down. That is when I quit writing for Hub Pages.
Absolutely nothing. I had one taken down within my first three days after the feed, which is critical. I proved that I was the original writer, but by that time any traffic generated by the feed was gone. I was furious because it was one of my best efforts. Since then it has generated some traffic, but not as much as it should have. I've had my underground house hub posted on several websites with and without photos and without any attribution, and even filed a Dwhatchamacallit, but it didn't do any good. Here you write at your own risk.
Hubpages can't prevent web scraping, does do a better job than some sites giving you notice of the scraping with periodic scans of content and sample DMCA notices.

Few hubbers are stealing the content of other hubbers and posting it on other sites by different usernames. I have published a hub on 20th August and within few hours this material was posted on blogspot by someone just changing few words in the title. I know the name of hubber but don't want to...
