Questions about Hubhopping

    I have been hopping hubs lately when I take breaks, and what I see it as is a way for hubbers to either comment on new hubs we find interesting, suggest improvements for newbies, or catch spam and other "bad" hubs for flagging. I am looking for some guidance here.

    The question is, I have seen lots of hubs lately that consist of see "latest tv show free" or "latest hot movie free" "some artist's music" and the hub is trying to get users to visit their other site which is at best violating copyright laws, and at worst is outright stealing the work of others.

    Should these hubs be flagged as spammy or for other reasons, or are they within the guidelines here?
    I know last week I saw more than 10 hubs encouraging users to click the link to see the latest episode of HBO show True Blood.

      Hubs that encourage the distribution of copyrighted material (such as pirated films/tv shows, etc) should be flagged "Other."  They are a violation of our terms of use.
