All the little copyright tags have disappeared from my hubs, except for the one that is a duplicate that I have elsewhere.
Of course, that doesn't mean there are still copies out there but it feels good for a bit.
Just because there are no copyright flags in your account page does not mean your hubs have not been copied!
I have never had one of those symbols in my account, and yet my hubs are stolen regularly! That's the reason I created HubDefender - the internal flagging here is not very comprehensive (at least not in in my experience)...
I've got a copied hub alert but the problem is it's been stolen dozens of times. I'm having a right job getting them all removed. Pisses me right off *sighs*
Congratz to you - it is nice when you locate the copied content and it's removed
Good for you UW. It must be a really nice feeling.
Another of mine's been copied - everything - even references to the fact that its my Mum's recipe and every photo taken in her kitchen. I felt SO insulted. I've contacted Buksia (sp?) and I've left a note in the comments section telling the copier that its my personal story etc! Sigh indeed.
However I am very happy for you and I'll look forward to that state on my stats too!
I'm so glad that none of mine have ever been stolen. Not that I would ever rub it in of course!
Great to hear you got rid of them for a time Susan
I sent off two DMCA notices a few days ago and the duplicates are still up (I'd already written to the webmasters but they just ignored me).
This time their host is getting them - actually just one host - a US company hosting sites in India and China.
How long does it normally take for them to take action? And if they don't, what then?
You should usually get a reply within 2 business days. If 5 business days go by without a response send a reminder and mention that if the content is not removed then your attorney will begin cease and desist proceedings.
Yipee! Good news for you!
I have my first ever copied hub, sigh. And I have no clue how to find out where it is copied at!
That's great news UW.
If the c's do appear, where would i find them on my hubs?
you should get more information in your actual hub under stats (If memory serves).
You can also check "copied hubs" on "my account" page. It gives you the URL of the copy they found.
That is one of my biggest fears is to have one of my hubs copied. I have been holding back on posting short stories because of it.
Glad to hear that you got the problem fixed.
That's great news, UW! I have got so fed up of trying to get copies removed from other sites I have lots of alerts depressingly littering my hubs list!
Actually, my hub on cat accessories has a copyright symbol again. It disappeared and now it's back.
This blows! Finally got a hub with some decent traffic (20+ views/day) and I got the "c" copied warning on it. Rereading this thread now, how and the hell do I track down and get the a=-holes that stole my content! Grrrrr, makes me mad, I don't even make money here at HubPages, why can't they steal from someone who makes something!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's the stolen content hub:
http://hubpages.com/_13onadfz6q3yu/hub/ … gthen-Hair
I saw on another related hub (about stealing content) that the author would post the link to his article on the stolen one to at least have a back hub on the offending hub. Still pisses me off though.
I also read (it was stolen by a blogger website) that I should go to there provider but I can't find it on the page...
Now since I've gotten really good feedback on a lot of my short stories, I'm worried about them being copied. -_-
I know what you mean Pabst, thing is, I still think it's better to get at least some of yourself (as a writer and/or artist) regardless of the theft risk. Hubpages has proven to me you can fight some of it...some of it is harder to fight. Meanwhile, keep at getting your work to the public, if someone makes enough money from stealing your work, it should be easier to expose them in the future.

Hooray! For months now I've been trying to figure out who to report the "alleged" infringement on one of my hubs where 9 links to ads have been placed. Whenever I would click the link it would take me to an advertisement that required 3 attempts to leave the page without buying the...

Periodically I notice a downturn in the traffic to one or more hubs, which leads me to Google the beginning or sections of it/them in search of content theft. Now HP is helping with this chore by notifying us of possible content theft and listing the sites where it's being used. There's even a...

I just ran across a site, radikewl dot com, that had copied another hubber's hub that I had a comment on. The entire hub, including comments, is translated into Spanish. No author is named. That led me to do a search for my own hubs on that site, and I found many of them, also translated into...

I have a few Hubs which still have stolen copyright notices on them. after many attempts to get them removed. Will this make them ineligible for transfer to one of the Niche Sites?
