Two of my articles have a little "c" (copyright) sign next to their titles. Down below it says that means "Possibly copied by someone else". What am I supposed to do about that, if someone copied MY article??? I"m apparently not being accused of copying someone else;s material, which is impossible because it is all mine, the words, the pictures...everything?
I tried to look up who is using my article and all I can find are links to Pintrest. That's not copying, that is promotion. I'm confused.
The articles in question are https://holidappy.com/party-planning/th … cup-shower
https://hubpages.com/style/adapting-vin … m-bracelet
If you click an article with the "c" symbol, there should be a red notice at the top of the page that gives more information and the link of where your material is posted. There's also a link that tells you how to file a DMCA complaint.
Go here: https://hubpages.com/my/hubs/copied
You won't be able to file a DMCA as HubPages suggests. You need to find the webhost of the infringing website.
Go to https://www.whois.net/
Type in the domain name (that will be the name of the site without the http://)
Try to identify the webhost. They will have a site where you can file a DMCA. The DMCA is the text in the HubPages box. Make sure to include your contact details.
It sounds complicated but once you've done a few it gets easier and quicker. I got two taken down in less than an hour last week.

One of my hubs has a little red copywrite symbol next to it that shows it may have been copied by someone else. I followed up on it a few weeks ago and the moderator closed that site. Now how do I get the little copywrite warning symbol off the hub? Here is the link:...
