writing is copyrighted at the bottom of each hub? Do you do it or not? Why or why not?
There is already a note that all work is copyrighted by the author.
However "scrapers" (automatic programs that take content) and unscrupulous users ignore such notices.
If you put anything online, you have to expect to have it copied at some stage. There are ways and means to get copied content taken down, including lodging a DMCA with Google, reporting the article to the site administrator or reporting to the site to the hosting company.
I agree with QuestionMaster. However, I think that indicating copyright is not a bad idea. It gives a sense of orderliness, and certainly shows the reader that the author claims the work as his or her own.
Is there a program that I can use to make sure my work is not copied? I believe I remember seeing one.
There are plugins you can use on your site to stop people right clicking or highlighting, but scrapers can get around that.
there are programs you can use, that cost money, I think Copyscape is one, but you can use Google alerts for free.
Just set up a Google alert, using the title or a specific sentence from the first paragraph of your writing, and Google will send you a notice if it finds that sentence on the Net.
Just Google "Google Alerts" for easy instructions and guidelines.

Do you include a copyright notice in your articles? Why or why not?I never do this, but I see that a lot of folks on here do. Just wondering what the opinions are out there.
