    Help!!! HubPages under a different branding?  Stolen repurposed content?  Scraped? Infringement?

    I found one of my articles in its entirety on a site called Storyteller -- the page is  MCenter.  I have never heard of this site.  After some searching, it brings up an interface that notes the original HP branding.  I sent a copyright infringement note to Hubpages (but then I saw this, so now, I have NO idea what's going on here).  My original article is on HP's "Hobbylark" niche site.  This here is the stolen one's address.. … loses-Down 

    Is this from HP?  If not, what can we do?

    It's a known Russian site that ignores us and steals our stuff.  There's little we can do in this case. It's annoying, but not harmful really to our content.

    The site is a complete copy of Hubpages' TOS and not just annoying but I want some assurance from HP that it belongs to them, or they are fighting to have it removed. It is damaging me because a Google search brings up this site with my stolen content, and NOT my HP article.

    It's your responsibility to track down the name of the site's hosting company, to file a DMCA complaint against them. That generally results in the content being removed.

    HP cannot do this for you. Only the copyright holder (you) can file a DMCA to have their original content removed.
