    I had my breast cancer story on Helium.com, Can I still publish it on here?

      Write it again - in different words and then publish.

      If it is no longer on Helium, and if Helium's license terms does not prohibit it, yes you can publish it here. In that case, it is not duplicate content, therefore a rewrite is unnecessary.

    Welcome to HubPages! smiles

    You can publish a different variety or variation of the article, but you cannot purposely create duplicate content.

    HubPages articles should be original content.

      But it is my story on how I survived breast cancer...I wrote it. It has never been sold.

        There is a reason I used the word "variation". If you have Helium for your article, then posting here will get it tagged with a duplicate tag.

        If you use the same story, but write it a little bit different, then you can benefit from it being in both places.

      Actually, I think that because it is her content, it is okay to publish it here, but it will probably be flagged as duplicate and have a lower score.  The one big draw back to duplicate content here, that I have read of, is that you are not allowed outgoing links. 

      If I recall right, Habee has copied some of her helium articles here.

        When I hit publish and went into my account to check on other stuff it had underneath it in big red bold Duplicate.

          If the article is no longer posted on Helium or elsewhere on the Internet, that warning should go away sooner rather than later.

          Yes, it will have that, unless you rewrite it by more than 30%, but you are not breaking the TOS, because it is your property.  You have the copyright.

          @WE, unless Helium decides her article is worthless, it will remain published there, even if she were to close  down her account.  Once things are published there, the writer has no control over them.  They simply retain rights to publish it else where.
