I have a notice from HP that someone may have stolen my article and although I should know how to check this out I do not and looking online is not getting me any closer. Could anyone please help? https://hubpages.com/education/Virginia … n-American
I had one recently, clicked on the article in question, clicked on the red "warning -content may have been stolen", this took me to the "copy." Lordy, I hardly recognised it as my own hub, it's so badly spun. Had me laughing fit to bust. I'm tempted to steal it right back, though of course I should file a takedown notice.
Now that's funny, Innerspin. I had one listed as copied and it was. I had done an interview with a TV station personality about their on-air pet cat and after I published the article, they copied it and published it on their website under my real name. What could I do? After being so nice to give me the interview and permission to use their photos, how could I ask them to remove my article about their cat? I just ignored it. That was several years ago and it's been shelved anyway, so I don't worry about it.
I have an article about my underground house, still currently running, that's been copied several times without my permission, both with and without my photos. I've filed a DMCA, but it's been ignored, so I just let the idiots go. I did have the NY Times call me this week to tell me that they read my hub and would like to do their own story about my house. Unfortunately, I had to turn them down because right now is just not a convenient time for us. I did leave the door open for the future if they don't find someone else with a house similar to mine to write about.

After more than a year without publishing any hubs, I've decide to start publishing again. First two items on the agenda involved finishing an unpublished hub and responding to comments. Then I decided to investigate whether any of my hubs have been plagiarized and copied elsewhere during my...

Today was the first time I've actually seen that little red copyright symbol next to one of my hubs. COPIED - What a nasty business. I filed a DMCA form on the offending site which posted my hub as their own back in 2011 on Blogspot. Wonder why it took so long to find the copy.Copycats and scrapers...

If you are seeing a drop in traffic, start checking for more stolen content. After seeing a nice surge in traffic following the latest Panda thing, I suddenly tanked. Stats were not updated quickly, so it took me a bit to realize I was indeed seeing a 'trend.' Sure enough - there...
