I have some poetry that I would like to submit in a hub, just wondered if I should copywrite it first? Does publishing it here constitute a "poor man's" copywrite? Thanks in advance for any suggestions/advice.
Yes it does. However, you have to be aware that anything published on the internet is vulnerable to copying. Your copyright is only useful if you know someone has copied it!
Copyright comes upon your pen
As you write each poetic line
So if some scumbag steals your stuff
You've the right to say "IT'S MINE!"
But finding where the scumbag fenced
Your masterful strands of rhyme
Is the sort of thing that takes too long
Costing precious writing time.
Whatever you put on the net expect for it to be copied some how. Honestly don't worry yourself with it and just go about doing what you want to do. Otherwise your going to cause yourself a huge headach and a battle you just can not win.

I cannot find anything on the website about who to contact, or the company that owns it. So I went to one of...

A question about publishing poetry hubs.When publishing poetry hubs, is it better to put several poems together in one hub or give each poem its own hub? Any input on this matter would be appreciated.

We added the Pinterest "Pin It" button to the small collection of popular social-sharing buttons at the top of Hubs on Thursday. Pinterest has rapidly become one of the largest social media traffic drivers to HubPages, already substantially larger than Twitter and Reddit. Maddie wrote a...
