I just noticed that huba7 posted this Hub:
http://hubpages.com/hub/Some-10-Reasons … their-Jobs
which is a direct copy of my Hub from eleven months before:
I reported it through a flag with Duplicate tagged and a short explanation.
Thank you for a quick remedy to this situation.
Patty this sucks. I can't understand how stupid people can be...chin up the hubteam will fix it. reards Zsuzsy
Patty, according to what HubPages has said is the proper procedure when people bring up copied work, you may have to file a DMCA with them to get them to actually take down the hub.
I would think that given that it's right here on HubPages that if they compared the dates published they'd quickly ascertain who was the original author. And take appropriate action.
This really is a stupid move but one that has been done before. HP will fix it as they always do when it is a hub copied here. How dumb can these people be? LOL
wow, they really underestimate how much people will notice blatant violations of the spirit and TOS of hubpages.
Yikes! I tell ya, hardly anything pushes my buttons, but stealing the creative efforts of another one does! Happy to see that Hubpages management acted swiftly!

Thank You Hub Pages!
I just found this thread Patty and am delighted (and impressed) to see it has been resolved quickly. If it had not been fixed, what would be the implications had we hubbers visited the stolen hub and given the thumbs down? Does the fact that a hub is visited give credit to that hubber's score? How, exactly, do thumbs down affect scoring etc?
I suspect we might have been better ignoring it until you got it sorted.
So glad this was sorted for you.
Words fail me ...........
The hubber in question seems to have no hubs any more either
One little mistake.......

A hub of mine was copied on a blogger blog. I saw the copyright symbol on my account and found the blog. Clicking on "report abuse" I filled out their form, and the article was removed in a few hours. It was very easy, thanks to the notification by HP and quick action by blogger.

I can't believe what's just happened. One of my hubs was scraped and stolen. No big deal right? Happens all the time and its something that seasoned online authors get used to after a while because hunting thieves down is almost impossible. Well here's a new twist. Hub Pages found the stolen...
