I just noticed that my Fudge Recipes hub has been reprinted all over the place...
At least I have the top spot when I search parts of it.
I'd be really upset if it was all my work but I had found the recipes elsewhere and rewrote them. But I really am irked that it was written in the 1st person about my own experiences...
I don't expect I have made much off it and I am still getting a lot of traffic from Google.
thats annoying- i think with recipes it is so much better when you have tried them yourself and made your own mistakes that you can write about!
Perhaps the money is like making sweets- takes a long time to get to boiling point
Chances are it was posted on a major article directory or two (One of the ones which allows republication). My advice would be to chase down these sites and get it removed from them.
The sites which use those article directories fro content generally don't get much traffic, so you don't really need to chase after each one of those.
And rightly so!
I'd be FUDGIN Fudged! Not to mention Fudging Fudge To each Fudge again were clearly Fudgin Fudges
UW I need a Fudging Fudge so Fudging Fudge Its not Fudgnny!
btw Ever Fudging one of them Can Fudging kiss your Fudge, and now mine UW because they fail to realize in time their Fudged actions will have made you a fudgen loud of cash.[remembering lyrics then will be a priority UW makes mental note and leaves thread to give her some fudge]
[however unaware Lyrics stole recipe already thankfully with still no suspicion]

I Fudging miss ya
My recipe hubs have been ripped off all over the place too. I just had a bunch taken down. People totally misunderstand copyright when it comes to recipes.
They can use your list and measurements of ingredients, but that's it. The actual preparation methods, etc. cannot be copied.
i didnt know that methods could not be copied.
My mum says i copy all her recipes and that I should change the title to my mums cottage pie etc.....
That's what I did, copied the ingredients from elsewhere and wrote my own directions. It's not that difficult.
I don't know if it's worth chasing them down. One place I found it on was a forum and can't be bothered joining up just to tell them to delete it. Another was copied on a site that ignores emails and comments to remove articles, someone on Suite101 had a problem with the same site. Does anyone know how you report a Wordpress blog?
That's the main reason I don't post recipes. I've got two simple ones up but any that are seriously different, ancient, or secret in any way are being saved for 'the book'.

I have two Christmas hubs that are copied in multiple places. Most are just entire capsules. What should I do when they are on a lot of sites. File a complaint on each and every one? This will take forever. They both got extreme traffic last year.

Hi guys,I moved an article I'd had on That Other Article Site for a while here to Hubpages. It just got flagged for duplicate content so I figured it just hadn't disappeared from the search results yet, but when I went to Google it I found that it's been duplicated all over the place - which I...

After me saying this afternoon that no one has stolen my work for online purposes, it happened. I noticed this evening that a copy of one of my hubs is in a forum called Spot25. Some guy by the name of Eric posted it in its entirety and put a line at the bottom saying the article came...

While at a doctor's appointment with my husband, my cell phone rang. This is not a common thing, as I don't have a so-called "smart" phone, and I very, very rarely give out the number. It's for emergencies and keeping in touch while away from home.I had earlier tried to reach...

Under 'my account'? I've had this happen for two hubs that were copied but the copyright symbol appeared next to the title at the same time (or I noticed it at the same time). Luckily, I got the content removed as it was hosted on an amazon review and yahoo answers.My latest copied article was...
