Duplicate Content when Hub Was Ripped

    My sister signed up under me and she and I work together on lesson plans she's written to turn them into something HubPages friendly.

    Her first hub was removed due to duplicate content. It took a while for me to find out why, but it turns out it was completely ripped by linksy.net.

    She wants to send a DMCA thing, but really can't since her hub was taken down as duplicate content. She says she did not post it elsewhere. I helped her write the thing since it takes a lot of work to turn a lesson plan into a hub.

    She was really proud of her first hub, but now it's been taken down by HubPages because some other website is copying people's stuff on HubPages.

    How do we go about fixing this? I don't want to have her send out a DMCA when her hub is completely gone... she'll have no link to refer the people she contacts to in order to prove that her stuff on HubPages was up BEFORE it got ripped.

      Perhaps you could refer Linksy.net to the cached version of the article on Google, complete with timestamp if it still exists. What's the article's URL?

      I hear you. I just republished an eHow article only to find it was EVERYWHERE. I have sent dozens of takedown notices but it was also posted on forums where there is no way to contact the staff except through signing up to their forums (which now I don't want to do).

        I got some of my content copied on a forum, and got it taken down.  There should be an email address on the site for admin, that you can use without having to sign up.

    Yeah, that's what she did. The thing is that they must have ripped the article within hours of my sister publishing it because their timestamp is the same date as her. Wish us luck!

      Argh, shafted. Best of luck, both of you. Telling them ol'thoog vouches for yees may end up being counter-productive.
