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.. https://mcenter.spb.ru/entertainment/Li … 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.
There is a lot of information on a Forum post about MCenter. Here is the link https://hubpages.com/community/forum/14 … hubs-there I hope that helps.

HubPages has no problem allowing its users to post duplicate content. This dupe content could rightfully belong to the person who posted it, or it could be stolen -- in fact, a lot of it is stolen. I don't know for...

I find this all so depressing. Can anyone tell me how long after filing a DMCA complaint does it take to resolve these issues - or is it as long as a piece of string?How does earth does one motivate oneself to...
