      Good. I was reading the conversation earlier, that was the one that was listed on the front page of the site right? So Google took it down in less than 24 hours?

        More like 36 hours - Still, It's AWESOME!!!  I wasn't expecting such quick action at all.

    Good to know smile Did some someone blatantly just come and paste one of your articles and post them on blogger? How did you come to find out it was copied, or did Google notify you?

      Copied word for word and picture for picture

      My hub "The King Snake"

      I'd have NEVER known about it - but someone in the Hubpages forum told me about it!

      Google will never tell you.

      Yeah - was copied word for word and picture for picture - even had my name in the article.  Someone on hubpages let me know about it in the forums here.  It's gone now though! :-)

    Well, that is the third DMCA notice for the same site. I would like to know why it is still allowed to exist on Blogger.

    1. Wesman Todd Shaw profile image98
      Wesman Todd Shawposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Yeah really!  I think probably because it had no adsense on it?

      Maybe the others are still in the queue?

    I have not had such good vibes from Google.  I complained about several posting of my article which were even rated higher than my original article.  I wrote several times, they removed some but not all...I finally gave up.  I am NOT at all happy with them.

    Ok, I just checked it again...the stolen posting is still up but it is at least below mine and my original HP article is #1..so that's something.

      Dang Brie - I hate to hear that.  I'm going to have to check my articles, and I know it.  I just hate to spend time doing that.  I'm bound to be upset by it all.

      I'd not have known about the one that was copied if folks hadn't told me about it.

        Yea..I know..it is very upsetting and I'm sure there are more of mine out there too, but I can only tackle so many problems in a day...pisses me off!

    I am a little dense on how to find if I have any copied content. I once asked a hubber to help me, but never heard back. I am glad to know that Google is on the ball to help those who have been robbed.
