    Should I use the copyright option on bottom of editing page of hubs?

      I wonder about that too!

        Yes 2 Teeuwynn Woodruff and jennshealthstore.

      You should always use that copyright option. It shows the original year your hub was published in.

      Absolutely.  Also, you'd be smart to set up a spreadsheet that lists the title, publishing date and word count of each hub.  This way, if someone copies your work, you have exact information at your fingertips.  This would be especially important if the site should close down for some reason because it would be the only proof you actually have that you were the first one to write this.

    If you want your article to be considered for a niche site, the copyright is a requirement.

      Where did you learn this information?

      1. psycheskinner profile image81
        psycheskinnerposted 4 months agoin reply to this

        It's not true.  I have the notice turned off, including on articles imported to the niche sites.

          I hardly use it either since it is worthless. The people that copy articles do not care about it. I have seen more than one hub scraped with the copyright notice intact!

      I agree.  One of my articles about depression has been on HealDove for a pretty long time and the notice was never turned on.  Others have been imported to niche sites and I've used it on only two of them, so I doubt it's a requirement.

      It is not required to have. And realistically anyone can steal your content and publish it as theirs even if the copyright notice at the bottom of your hub.

    3. jennshealthstore profile image90
      jennshealthstoreposted 4 months ago

      Yes I did go back and realized that my articles on niche sites had it off as well.

      I just put it on my Hubs out of habit as I see no harm in having it.

    5. harrynielsen profile image95

      I didn't even notice the button until I had published many articles. Quite a few of them were on niche sites.

      I always do. It's not required, but there are cases where it helps.

      The copyright symbol and the date shows when the article was first published and it shows who to contact if more information is needed.  It also acts as a deterrent to people from copying your work.

      More important than that is that it protects you from "innocent infringement" and other such cases.

      That, and it's so easy to do so why not?  It doesn't hurt having it there.
