I haven't had a little copyright sign appear on one of my hubs for ages, yet if I do my own searches loads of them have been copied (could almost be a full time job getting them removed!)
Is this feature still working? if it is supposed to be then I would like to suggest it is not working too well.
Anyone who writes about jewelry might want to check out www viewgoods es where I have found some of mine duplicated
I want to move these jewelry hubs onto my own site as they are not performing on HP very well these days, but getting rid of the duplicates out there before I do this could be the major source of work
The "copied Hubs" feature has never been perfect. Edweirdo created a program called HubDefender which is far more thorough. With 224 Hubs you would need a paid subscription but it would be worth it, even if you just join for a few months to catch up with all the copies you've missed:
It looks to me like it needs some updates or something as there are multiple copies out there that I have to search for and find myself.....Hubpages will get round to it eventually after doing all of the changes that might just swing this site back round?!
So, at the moment, copied hubs feature is Kaput!
The feature is functioning the same as ever. If you wouldn't mind, could you email to me any examples of Hubs and copied articles that the copied Hubs feature missed? That's the only way we'll be able to work on improving it.

About once a week I peruse my hubs to check on traffic, comments, and just generally see how things are going. One of my hubs, "What Are The Benefits of Eating Bananas," had the copyright symbol next to it. I know from past experience that this means hubpages has found my content...

I notice that on the "copied Hubs" page, there's a column for "removed". I've never seen any Hub with an entry in that "removed" column and there seems to be no way to mark a copy as "removed". Is there meant to be?It would be an awesome...

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...

Do you include a copyright notice in your articles? Why or why not?I never do this, but I see that a lot of folks on here do. Just wondering what the opinions are out there.

I like the new improved look of the stolen hubs link. Thanks, HubPages.I just wish it were more helpful sometimes! It can be so difficult to file a DMCA. It can take so much effort to track down the thieves, Sigh!

I often intend to put a module either within my hub, or at the end, that might include some standard text/a link, e.g. that says "Copyright Me (Year) - Please do not copy and paste this article, but feel free to post a link using this url ....." or "Join Hubpages by clicking...
