Regarding HubPages policy about Hub publication of material published elsewhere on the Web.
HubPages doesn't allow authors to "Publish Hubs or Hub Content that are identical to, substantially similar to, or derived from other Hubs and/or content published elsewhere on the Web. This applies even if You are the owner of that content and/or have the rights to publish that content online".
Does "published elsewhere on the Web" include content that is NOT *ON* the Web but ONLY *LINKED TO*? I've considered 'Hubbing' a substantial excerpt from my book, which can be downloaded VIA the Web but cannot be viewed ON the web. Does that violate policy? And how limiting is "derived from"?
So far as my understanding goes you are in the clear to publish something here you own which isn't able to be viewed elsewhere on the internet.
Yes it does, also because the same AdSense forbids you to post content already published elsewhere. Articles copied from other sites (even if you are the author), or also from sources outside Web (like a book) are also penalized on search engines.
Content should be original and not published elsewhere, that is the meaning of that rule!
Talking about "derived from", it basically means if you are going to take an article you have previously published, edit some words or add little things, you are going against that rule! Obviously if your article is "derived", but the derivation consists in a complete change (for example, you are translating and integrating an article previously published, by also adding a lot of new things), then your article is completely different, and there would not be problems (just remember it has to become a complete different article!)
Thanks. Related Q: REVIEWS of books are apparently OK, and I've seen a book SUMMARY or two. Is the following OK?
•• A SUMMARY of a chapter of my free ebook with INDEPENDENT value (not a 'teaser').
•• At the end, a URL to the book download page.
If the summary is independent and you do not put similar sentences in your article (so basically, is a completely rewritten summary) yes, there won't be problems.
I have book excerpts of my print books in Hubs I've written, with a link and reference to my book. Since the print book isn't generally available in an online search, the content is fine.
I've written Hubs that explain a number of engineering standards, paraphrasing and summarizing the ISO and IEEE standards. It quotes them in a few places and refers and links to those standards for those interested. (Most people just want to know what the standard means when it is called out on purchasing or engineering specifications.)

Are we allowed to republish our articles elsewhere and keep the original hubs here in the mean time?

Curious...if I post something on HubPages, do I retain the copyright so I can attempt to sell something posted here for publication? Like a magazine or journal?

I know hubpages prohibits writers from having duplicate content. My problem is understanding what that exactly means. I heard from many that it means writers can't publish content here that already exists elsewhere, but can publish here first and then publish it elsewhere. My concern is if I were...
