Help! I posted a hub which uses extensive Bible passages. What I have written is original, but uses the passages to support the other material. I explained that to the hubpages board/panel/chieftains/gods yet their response wasn't clear to me and I was stuck with a duplicate red mark -- ouch.
I would imagine there are others who quote Scripture (which I don't believe falls under any copyright laws) so duplication would come up on passages, even though the information surrounding the passages is different and unique.
I have a hub in which I quote a lot from the Bible. But your elucidation of the quotes and unique material should out weigh your quotes to be considered unique work.
If you need to use long passages.. quote reference numbers and paraphrase the scripture ..so that you don run into trouble.
Using links to online Bibles may also help .. MHO
Duplicate content is NOT an issue of copyright.
Basically, duplicate content is seen by search engines as bad, so any content that appears more than once on the internet, whether you wrote it, hold the copyright or for any other reason, is duplicate.
If, for instance, you published the same article on your blog and then on Hubpages, the Hubpages copy would be considered a duplicate.
The only thing you can do is make sure the duplicate content is minimal - basically add more of your own words to the verses - OR place the verses as a picture so they won't be picked up as text.

Hi Everyone. I am new to HubPages so am open to any and all suggestions. But I also have a question. Are the hubs you post totally unique to HugPages or are you posting your original work that you have also posted elsewhere on the web? Thanks in advance for your responses.Julie

I still see this when hubhopping. I leave it alone as I'm always unsure of it. However I'm trying to work out, re duplicate content, as to whether this matches what I see.Often they're full of bible quotes, with the hubbers opinion interspersed. Largely, the main body of content is the Bible...
