    I have just been notified that two of my hubs have been copied (exactly the same even the adds). HubPages have left a notice to file a complaint, but I can't read the whole thing and I don't know exactly what I should be doing. Thank in advance for your help.

    To get the entire hub PLUS the ads, the lazy scumbag must've copy|pasted the entire Page Source (found under "View" or "Web Developers" in the menus at the top of every browser) of each hub. This is MOST or ALL of the HTML coding for every webpage. That it's available to anyone but the author is a blessing and a curse.

    A blessing because years ago when I was learning to build web pages from scratch, I used it often to examine snippets of code in order to spiff up my own pages. But it's a curse when used to steal the work of others to claim as one's own.

    Good luck on getting the copied hubs removed.

      The unbelievable thing is one of the copied hubs had my profile picture and my name on it. On the end of each page it had my url with HubPages. The site itself is a writers site.
      Anyway I'll get to the bottom of it and share so I can help others, just like I've been helped.
      Thank you for your support. I'm grateful:)

    So, was this content re-published in Hubpages or somewhere else?  If it Hubpages I hope that at the very least the perpetrator9s) are banned for life!

      No. I published the content on HubPages and two writers on Scribd.com each copied a different hub in it's complete form. One of the copiers even left HubPages and my name and profile picture on their post. They even copied my Amazon adds and pictures too. Unreal.
