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?

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...

Recently, I found that a number of my articles have been stolen for use on various sites and blogs. In at least two cases the stolen version has been outperforming mine, and ranking higher on google.
