    Let the HubScore Algorithm sort it out. No need to bring drama to the forum.

      That's alright. A shame you're not giving Hubpages a go to show him how to do it right.

      I do think there needs to be an option in the Flag feature where it says "Duplicate Content" and a spot where a person can paste the URL of the where it came from.

      Sometimes there's article sites out there, or PLR articles, where you can republish them. While on one hand Hubpages wishes to have original content published here, which is fair enough. On the other hand it's not wrong to republish that material.

      But if content is lifted from authority sites ( is the website of a magazine here in Australia called Australian Personal Computer) such as Wikipedia or even from news sites then it should be dealt with harshly. If a person doesn't put a link back to the source, then it should be deleted.

      If it does have the link but the entire hubs existence is merely because it's a direct scrape from the other site then one would hope it never fares well with the Hubscore.

      If a person is using it as an extract and it's only a small part of their hub article, then that would be fine. At least in my opinion.

      Copying and pasting an entire article from another site verbatim won't get any love from the Search Engines anyway, with it being duplicate content that they're already aware of.

        Pasting the URL to the original source would be a good idea - would have solved the problem.

        Hubpages having original content is good - nice to have multiple ways of getting good information

        If the person needs to be told that sticking their own name under something not written by them is not "how to do it right" then nothing I do will give them the kind of help they need.  :-)

          Actually, I wasn't meaning for you to instruct them personally, but to publish content that is of a certain standard. To lead by example big_smile

    content copying
    cut copy paste
    whether few words or full is Plagiarism, stealing of materials and it should be condoned and condemned
    and pasting urls helps in other readers aware of the original author.
    i understand your telling time and again not to paste urls but there is no option left for the original author who is writing and not earning revenue out of it where as the copy cats like maxpress and kim are using hindi even in there profile which we cant flag
    the profile content that cant be flagged but is pirated how do we report it and get it removed if not post it in forums

      I'm suggesting to the author of this thread that drawing it to the attention of the forum users isn't going to help.

        i am really surprised that your hubbers maxpress and kim have not as yet replied to even one thread and have not protested even once that the material on their hub written in hindi is there own writing .
        the profile content of maxpress has been deleted so his hubs in hindi
        but kim is still using my poety lines as the profile and i need this to be removed with immediate effect .
        i am not drawing you valuable attention and wating your valuable time on the contrary its my time being wasted
        and with kim and max press not saying a single word proves that they are cheating on my material
        so why dont you guys make an effort to drill sense into them and ask them to change the profile from hindi to english , a language that you and your adminstrators acan understand.
        send them a couple of mails and let them relaise how much brunt the innocent hubbers have to bear because of them
        hubpages is responsible for the content uploaded and if its not as per their policy then its they { hubpages } who have to find a solution
        and believe me i dont need to draw attention its just that
        I WANT TO PROTECT MY IDENTITY MORE THAN MY WORKS. indian social conditions are different from yours and we abide by our conditions . we are not interested to be associated with writers who write " trash" as per indian standards . porn is known as trash in our country . we believe in peace like MOHAN DAS GHANDHI but we believe in PROTEST also like him

        PLEASE ask maxpress and kim to remove my poems from their profile content and also from their hubs and as soon as you can get it done guys you will not hear from me
        till then i have to fight thru these forums to protest even though you call it spam

          When you say "indian social conditions are differrent from YOURS and we abide by our conditions.

          Who do you think you are referring to exactly? Do you think all hubbers live in one city or one country? I presume that you assume all hubbers are American. The Hubbers on this site are from all over the world and it is ridiculous for you to make such a general statement as well as try to make anyone believe that ALL of your people hold themselves to such a higher standard than the rest of the world?

          Do you have no drug problems? no murder? no rape? no theft of any kind?

          Where exactly is this magical world of perfect people who live by ideal standards?

            And I firmly believe these 2 hubbers i am refering to are from india because they are using pirated hindi content

    We deal with duplicated content in two ways:

    1) We have a duplication detector that finds out how many other Web pages have the same content as the Hub, and assigns a penalty to the Hub's HubScore. The system is not 100% foolproof (it can record a false positive if there are, for whatever reason, many commonly-used phrases in the body of the text), so if your content is indeed original but flagged as duplicate, please use the "Request a Review of this Hub" link in the [learn more] link within the notification pane at the top.

    2) If a copyright owner sees content duplicated in a Hub without his/her permission, he/she can file a complaint using the procedure we've put together here.
    This link is also available when you click the [flag this hub] link in the Hub.

      on the contrary Mr Jason its more friutfull to rite to adsense , and aol because they have made policies to block sites if reported for pirated content

        Ah yes, because having blocked by Adsense is really going to help us.

    hello1234 only seems to have signed up with hubpages to complain about copied info...of which not everyone does.

    I think people who are upset about these things should and need to follow the procedurest that the powers that be at hubpages have outlined, rather than post frequently in the forums about it, as well as trying to complain to outside sources about it.  What is the need to punish those of us who don't copy just because some do?

      hello1234posted 15 years agoin reply to this

      more are doing this then you are realising
      check content of hubs whicha re direct copies of sites
      and once piracy will be reported measures will be taken
      this is usa and not some 3rd country where no lawas prevail but i think rules are not being adhered to on hub pages and with so many hubs the adminstraters are failing to control content so informing ad giving sources is the only way

    You assume that all the thousands of hubbers actually read and post on these forums. It is actually a small percentage that read and use the forums.

    Maybe they have not replied because they are guilty of what you speak or maybe they simply do not read the forums.

    I was recently introduced to HubPages and I thought it looked like a pretty good idea as far as promotion goes. After reading these recent forum comments I am convinced that I have been wasting my time. While I understand the concerns over plagerism this forum seems to be full of petty bickering and backbiting. I would think that complaints to the powers that be would be enough, but to openly insult, accuse, and defame ones character in the manner I have seen here, is unprofessional and immature. I want no part of it. What is so precious about ones words that one feels that no one else may ever speak them? If that were the case, then we would all be mute and that is not the case. Who cares if you are from India, America, or China? (Simply examples, in case you are poised to attack my comments as well)

    Since I am actually overworked and have little time for such pettiness, please feel free to rip this post apart, for after this post I will no longer visit HubPages any way. My precious time has been wasted here.

    Some of you simply need to grow up and learn to show yourselves as professionals rather than a bunch of bickering snot nosed kids!

    Have a good day.

      well said by someone who created a hub that is one half paragraph and links to your shopping mall site. Your time was wasted because you did nothing with it.

    As one who have studied with International students at Middle Georgia College, Cochran Georgia; DeVry-Atlanta and Keller on-line; in this HUB Forum, I will be honored if any Hub I have published was cloned into another language.  To be copied is a complement.
