hello, this is a question for the HubTeam.
Hubs options came up in another forum conversation. under "my account", there is a section called "YOUR HUBS", and in this section are several choices displayed:
some people don't have the "Copied Hubs" option, although i do. i was just wondering a) what this is and why everyone doesn't have it and b) does it show if someone copied your hubs at HubPages or at other places?
??? good question? I dont have it?
I cant imagine anyone would copy my hubs tho...
myabe its to keep track of how many hubs you have that are "duplicate content" ?
wow...am i the only one who has it? nobody else has it. i swear i'm not hallucinating hee hee
maybe everyone else is hallucinating that they dont have it?
maybe hubpages are still test running the feature and decide to start with your hub. hehehe
I have it-- but I never noticed and I never looked before. There are a couple listed that I knew were posted elsewhere-- but that's ok.
I just found another one from that list-- It does give me a byline, but no one asked my permission.
Thanks for bringing this subject up.
I'm thinking about what to do...
I wouldn't mind if they post a link. I would even them a unique 'teaser' about the article if they linked it. Plus I have several others in the same category they might like to have(links to).
I think it is still being tested, I noticed it appear a few days ago, and it has already picked something up which I dealt with.
I have had it for 6 months I think and it has two sites listed on the net that have copied one of my hubs. It has been there for quite awhile.
I think it may be for those with over 100 hubs, I'm GUESSING anyway.
No have had it for ages and I only have 38 hubs lol.
Okay, that IS weird then... I wonder what ELSE us less privileged hubbers have NOT.
I assumed everyone had it lol. I always have used it to see if my work has been copied.
peeps who have been here more then..9 months or so? maybe?
I've been registered for two years and only jsut seen it appear lol
I am really not sure the reason I think I got it August last year from the date of the site reported in there. That is like 7 mths ago.
Maybe it doesn't come up til they report to the hubber a copied site.
I am hoping maybe I stumbled on the answer lol.
We need one of those batman sky lamps, but with a picture of Paul Deeds on it.
stumbling on the answer is better then stumbling up the stairs..
honestly tho, theres got to be a good reason. if someone has never reported their stuff as copied, there wouldn't be a reason to monitor it. makes sense to me.
Hubpages is clever at personalising your options. For instance all the men on hubpages get the following option which the women don't

The feature was introduced on a test basis about six months ago - I must admit, I thought everyone had it by now. It's very useful.
It should be on the extreme left of your Account page under "Your Hubs".
I know where your hubs is, I dont have it. its ok tho, Im pretty sure I dont really need it?
But-- I'm assuming (and yes, I know what that means) It would not show up if you did not have any copied or duplicate hubs. I love the fact that it gives a quick and easy way to issue a legal warning to the unauthorized user.
Here's what I have...

Hub Hopping (New!)
hehehe, let's see who will fall now like i did
I would like to have it because the alternative is opening every single hub I have and using google search for the phrases used within. I have read that hubpages are pretty good at informing you if they find copied content, but is this the case when others here have occasionally said they have stumbled across their own copied ocntent on the web?
Izzy, when we say HubPages is pretty good of informing us, we're referring to that red "c" that appears next to a Hub in your Statistics page, and the "Copied Hubs" thing. That's the only way they tell us.
HubPages don't email you and let you know, or anything like that.
And I do like the DMCA template, saves a bit of time sorting one out yourself, which might not cover all the angles.
That DMCA template is not up to standard for a LOT of sites and you will find that if you use it, many places will just kick back your complaint on the grounds that you didn't supply the right info.
It wont matter if you contact their ISP because it is their job to prove they did not violate the copyright. If you can show it on a site which has a creation date earlier than their post, you are pretty much covered.
(I have filed so many of these things I have set up a seperate email address to deal with them all)
The other day, i saw someone that copied two of my hubs, coverted them into pdf format and posted it in a forum without link. I didn't bother myself over that because he was only sharing ideas.
Be careful with that, I recently found the entire homepage of one of my sites had been copied and published in to an Indian magazine in England, which had been uploaded as a PDF on to a website, which had then been read by Google and then indexed!
Filed a DMCA against the site that had uploaded the publucation, and a copyright infringment notice to the magazine.
One got taken down, the other sent me a settlement of £100 for 220 words
The Copied Hubs feature has existed in function for a long time now, and has been present on the dashboard since it was updated to the overall look that exists now.
If you don't see it that link, then no one has stolen any of your Hub content and copied it elsewhere.
If you see it, you've got copied Hubs.
well, i clicked on that option but it said i didn't have any copied hubs. i assume it should show links to whoever is copying my hubs, right?
well, hopefully someone from the HubTeam will happen along and solve the mystery!
I don't know what that option does exactly and if it would help me but I wanted really bad )). So no mail saying that is a beta feature and we were selected to try? Hmm..

I just ran across a site, radikewl dot com, that had copied another hubber's hub that I had a comment on. The entire hub, including comments, is translated into Spanish. No author is named. That led me to do a search for my own hubs on that site, and I found many of them, also translated into...

We all appreciate that it's our own responsibility to protect our own work, but it's a big job, and it's in HubPages interest to help us, because plagiarism affects the whole site's income.On another thread, there have been several suggestions of features HubPages could add. So far we have:-...

This forum is a place for you to post hubs that you think are clearly of low quality and need flagging. Committed hubbers should follow this forum and check these hubs posted for quality when they have the time. If a hub has been clearly copied (for example from a PDF file that the plagiarism...

Periodically I notice a downturn in the traffic to one or more hubs, which leads me to Google the beginning or sections of it/them in search of content theft. Now HP is helping with this chore by notifying us of possible content theft and listing the sites where it's being used. There's even a...

Perhaps this is old hat and I didn't read the memo, but just wanted to let you know (I informed HubPages) that web host service dot org has hacked HubPages. http : // webhostservice . org/ They have inserted their url into every one of my Hubs.
