What would you do if you found out a published book plagiarized & stole your hub?
Because I've been tipped off that this is the case with a hardcover book selling on Amazon. According to the tip, it's word for word.
Notify Amazon. If you can prove it, and they have made any sales, it will come back to you.
I personally would be OK with it. They were able to do something with it that I couldn't do, publish it.
As far as my hubs, I encourage people to use them with my persmission.
Really? Plagiarism and copyright infringement? I make a full-time living as a writer; it's hard for me to be okay with it, it burns me up )
Why couldn't you publish it?
I can't believe your answer! After all, this is a writing website.
Are you really sure? What have you written that is worthy of being published? If you can make a living off of hp then you don't need the money. Don't Hillary Clinton me, read my comment, If I cn publish it then I don't care.
Is it being sold by a well established and respected publisher? And, how well is it selling?
Seems fairly established, selling in hardcover, online outlets & bookstores. Crazy, right?
Tamara appears to have the approach I'd be most likely to try. I'd also suggest talking to HubPages about support in proving your claim. My guess is one of your readers will know how to contact them.
I agree with one of the earlier posters - get a copy of the book and PDF of your hub and tell Amazon it is plagiarized with the proof of that in hand/email.
First you have to confirm that the tip is correct. If it is correct, then you need to contact the author, the publisher, Amazon and Hub Pages. Your hubs are copyrighted so this is considered copyright infringement. You have grounds for legal action.

So I've worked on my novel for the past 3 years, finally buckled down and finished it this year. Just recently published it on Amazon Kindle, and I'm so very excited about it. The thing is, I don't know how to promote myself in the best way. And I don't have a ton of $$$ to spend on website design...

I posted this hub about MOPS a few days ago: http://thatmommyblogger.hubpages.com/hu … S-Meeting. It took me hours to write, and I wrote it about a very personal topic. There is no chance that I plagiarized it, and I did not post it on any other site.I'm getting a duplicate...

Hi, Does anyone know anything about the company Publish America? I sent my childrens story manuscript to them without illustrations and they apparently liked it because they want me to submit illustrations--which is not a problem. I am a bit freaked out by it because I know...

On a site call "Rewarder" I found the text from a Hub of mine just copied and pasted in as an answer with no link...does this qualify as infringement since it's being used as an answer on one of these types of sites or is this a different beast? It does say at the beginning "by...

I recently found one of my poems published in a book that sells on many different sites. As near as I can tell, the book was published sometime in 2012. I am kind if at a loss as to what to do. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I wrote a piece about Scorpio Sun Sign People about 6 years ago when I was new here. Most of my main niche is astrology, and instead of contacting me civilly to ask if there was a problem, my piece that was on Exemplore was just pulled from the site. I had just edited it tonight because it's a good...
