I don't know if I'm in the right category so feel free to report this post to have it moved to the right one.
I was just notified that one of my hubs was actually copied in 2 separate sites - voicedup.com and alloutbangalore.com. I sent DMCA complaints to Google against both sites and also emailed voicedup.com about the copied content. I can't find the email address in alloutbangalore.com though so I posted a comment under the same article.
What's weird is that voicedup.com put me as the correspondent for the same article (without a link whatsoever). I don't know if this is a common thing though.
Haven't found any other hubs copied but then again I only have a short time to look into the site.
By the way, just want to say thanks to the HP Team. I wouldn't have found these sites if it weren't for the notice from the team.
Emievil - its aggravation you just DON'T need isn't it?
Hope you get it sorted and soon. I don't have any answers for you but you have some of my positive energy as you hunt down the thieves!
I just had a similar situation with one of my hubs posted on two separate sites with no mention of me. I found it when I was checking some of my hubs to see how they were ranking in google. Fortunately they are not copied anywhere anymore but if you don't check occasionally HP may not always catch it and you will lose traffic to someone who doesn't deserve it. It's great that someone finds your work so good it's worth stealing but frustrating and time consuming to fix and check on. Definitely not a fun situation.

Hello,I was wondering if there is a way to unpublish all of my Hubs at once, or deactivating my account. I have been on HubPages for years, but I no longer find it as rewarding or enjoyable as I used to. At the same time, I don't want to close my account because I'm proud of all of the work I've...

Not a happy bunny. Following on from finding one of my hubs copied, and filing a DMCA, I've been checking other hubs. One that I did kind of expect to do well has never quite got the traffic I'd hoped. Have just done a check, and found the entire text and my title on six other sites.I am so cheesed...

I like the new improved look of the stolen hubs link. Thanks, HubPages.I just wish it were more helpful sometimes! It can be so difficult to file a DMCA. It can take so much effort to track down the thieves, Sigh!

Do you include a copyright notice in your articles? Why or why not?I never do this, but I see that a lot of folks on here do. Just wondering what the opinions are out there.
