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.

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...

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...

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...
