Years ago I used to write a newsletter, which I printed at home, photocopied at the 'mairie' (I lived in France at the time) and posted out to a few regular readers... this was before I had 'the internet'.
Some of the stuff I wrote back then I am now publishing in my hubpages.
(I shouldn't have a problem with duplicate flags, as only a few appeared on the web and they were on my old Geocities site, which no longer exists!)
My question is - when I note my copyright details, should I date it to when the article was first written? Or re-date it for now, especially if I update and 'tweak' it a little.
You do not need to date copyright, however if you do decide to do so, say copyright 'year' including continued amendments.
You may want to look at the credits given by a gentleman here on HP who has re-published many of his newspaper articles written over the years: William F. Torpey.

So, I understand I can't publish any content on here that I have used for another site. But can I publish on here first, then carry those articles over to another site? Is that allowed? Cause on the other sites I write for allow me to republish content on them... Also, I read that the hubs are...

Hello everyone. I am in dire need of your assistance and guidance. I'll sum up my problems in bullets for easy understanding:1. I have finished publishing my first short-story on hubpages and got good response beyond my expectations even from off hubpages.2. I have a script/story; much more...

When I update or revise older hubs, the HP standardized copyright notice does not change to the current year, so I remove that notice to update with my own current year notice at the bottom of my hub, using the correct format. Then I get the notice that HP prefers their own notice, which is...
