Hi, Is anyone concerned with work posted on hp being "stolen" and used elsewhere? Or is this just paranoia?
@AEvans, could you e-mail me the details of going about copyrighting my writings?
You are protected by HP but you are better protected if you also take care of your writings avoiding all of the headaches.
I hate to bother you AEvans but could you email that to me too?
Not received it yet, but I'm sure it'll be in my inbox by morning. Amm off to bed now x

A discussion started about this on the end of another thread, but it's got buried. I was checking an early Hub today and it reminded me, because I'd used a photo from another website. At that time, I didn't understand that most photos on most websites are copyright, unless they...

Another question regarding HubPages protocal and general legalities...How do we know if an image is copyrighted? Is it imperative that we use sites like freefoto.com or use only our own pictures, or can we include pictures saved or linked from, for instance, a google image search? This...

I noticed a Hubpage which suggested ripping off original content and putting it on a blog with adsense to make money. It suggested that you could use the same method to make the content for a hubpage. I know that Google will ban adsense accounts for these copyright infringements. ...

Has anyone ever run into copyright issues using images from photobucket? I like the selection at photobucket, but it seems like people post a lot of photos they probably do not own. I like using photobucket, but there's this thought in the back of my mind wondering if I've stolen someone's photo...
