    Do you allow people to take your copyrighted content and post it on their site if they credit you?

    I am currently overwhelmed at how the copyrighted content is being stolen from one of my hubs in particular.  I found one woman even warn people to not take HER copyrighted content (a photo) with MY written content being over the majority of her page!  People are very nervy it seems, and it's hard to even reach them.  I have spent some time doing so just now, and then found another man stole the same content onto his flickr page, BUT he did at least credit me here on HubPages.  This will mess up the searches, etc. 

    Can you please share any thoughts on how you deal with people in such cases?

    Often, if i get a polite request from a Non-profit organization, I will give permission if they give me credit on their publication.
    Sad to say, the reality is that the web is like the wild west, with all of its villains and shysters, just waiting for an easy sucker to take advantage of.
    I take one day a month and try to go after at least one of these crooks. Some are polite and take care of their error, more never respond, and I do file against them but my batting average is low even then.
    Good luck!

    I agree with Don, the web is like the wild west. It is a nuisance when people steal your stuff, but, you might take it as a complement. At least your material is worth stealing!

    No, I do not, because it hurts the rankings and views of my content and gives others the idea that they can do this.
