I had a Phillip drop by, make a comment, when I sent to his site, he completely copied by content.
I just sent him a note and asked him not to copy, explained the material is owned by VeriPure and is copyrighted.
I denied his comment.
What else can I do?
If the content is owned by VeriPure, then that's who has to file the infringement complaint. If you aren't VeriPure, you don't have a legal leg to stand on as you don't own the content, and you may be seen as infringing yourself if you don't have explicit permission to use it either.
What's the link to the copied content. Did you copy his content or did he copy yours?
It would also be interesting to know when your content was marked as duplicate and what his comment on your hub said.
Just let me know the outcome of this lil adventure.
I would also like to hear from the other two or so people in the last weeks to have had this problem.
I would like to know how the process worked for them, or if it worked at all.
TMMason, the process is very simple. You look for a way to send an email to the site owner, then send them an email using DMCA wording. Be polite, not nasty, but point out that you'll be complaining to their host and/or Google if they don't either take the content down, or reduce it to an excerpt with a link to your original.
If you can't find an email contact for the site owner, click on the "ads by Google" link on any Google ad on their site and report them.
It does work.
Some people try leaving a comment on the blog, or send an ordinary email first - but that rarely does much good, in my experience. If you use the DMCA immediately, it makes them realize you know your rights and they're going to lose!
If you own VeriPure,why are you asking hubpages for help,when you should have a paid lawyer to take care of this matter??
I'd assume that VeriPure had already previously published the content. If that assumption is correct it means you'll always be marked as being duplicate.

Is there anyway that a feature can be added to Hubpages that identifies where in a hub it thinks there is an instance of duplication.I recently published a hub which was identified as duplicate, I spent hours researching the topic and typing it up, once published in hub pages it was flagged as...

I'm not copying anything, just trying to understand. I've been on a 24 hour crash course on hubs, seo, adsense, google rankings, etc... and one part that just seems to get more confusing the more I dig is the part about duplicate content.If I have a hub or a blog, and someone copies it, what...

Please make a note of all of us in several forums that have found so many (or our) hundreds of copied hubs onto other sites. Read the threads because they contain so much information and then DO SOMETHING about it for all of us at Google. NOW.I've only just begun to look for stolen hubs and...

So on May 12th, I published my article "Why is my dog smacking his lips?". It comes back to me today with a notice from hubpages saying it is duplicate content. This upsets me because I have been a writer for more than 5 years and I hate, hate, hate copied content to start with and...

All three of these people, I'm sure, are actually the same person. Not only have they copied material from free blog sites, they have copied the same material! Also, they all each say they're Sharon or Sandy (the "Sandy" uses the same avatar as one of the "Sharons"...
