I have a couple of Hubs that are two years old. I would like to make a couple of minor edits, but I fear that they would then get flagged for duplicate content, as they have been widely copied across the web over the last two years.
I would go ahead and make the changes and point to your original publish date to indicate that your article is the original and has been copied if it is not allowed to be re-published for those reasons.
Also you should contact the sites where they have been copied and ask for them to be taken down
I just had a copied item removed from another site.
It turned out to be quite easy and painless
Actually there is nothing to worry about refreshing it, copyspace may include your site for the duplication but there is a date that would check the originality of the hub. Most flagging is made by our fellow hubbers, who wants to pull you down..instead of helping.
I would go ahead and refresh them I always refresh and update mine. As far as copies all over the net, if you didn't post them elsewhere then you need to file DMCA letters. If you did, then changes may help.

First, a pure personal discouraging finding: just confirmed the traffic has absolutely dropped: within the past 24 hours, I had 31 hubs with 0 visits, about 20 with 1, a handful with 3, then the rest is 4 to somewhere...
