One of my hubs has been copied here: hxxp://www.hielectronicshop.com/
And it looks like a lot of the other posts could be hubs too. All seem to be gift related.
Mine has had a unique first paragraph added by the thieving b*stard. So have close look!
There is content there from hubbers that include:
And who knows how many more!
Plus there is content there from every article place - including ezine, associatedcontent, articlebase and squidoo.
Good for you for taking the time to look properly I thought many looked hub-ish, but didn't have the time to check them out.
I've sent a DMCA to google BTW as the site hosts adsense ads.
And for any other hubbers that find their work on there - make sure you do too!
Susana S and QuestionMAster: thanks for this! 'Tracy' did quite a lot of cutting and pasting on this site LOL
Shame all that work will go to waste - gonna send in my complaint shortly!
Hmm there don't seem to be Google Ads on there - so I can't complain to Google? or am I missing something!

Have you read this?
Adsense is gone, (it was on there for certain), so either they have had their adsense account banned or they've taken adsense off after the DMCA complaint.
Now off to file a complaint with the hosting company.
Edit: ixhosting doesn't have a link to email about Dmca's specifically so I'm going to use the general email which is: questions[at]ixwebhosting[dot]com
since cloverleaf's has been in the hottest hubs a few times I sent an email to her
I did a little research on hielectronicshop.com. They just started the site on July 6, 2011. The domain is registered by TUCOWS.COM in Toronto, Canada.
Their Corporate Attorney's name and number is listed in their "contact" page of TUCOWS.COM. It may help to call them and/or send a DMCA notice directly to them.
They say on the site that it's powered by WordPress. But their domain DNS servers belong to ixwebhosting.com who is the company hosting the site, located in Ohio.
In addition to all that, some of the links on their site go to hallomall.com. That domain was registered in April 24, 2011 by name.com, LLC.
Comparing some text of random pages, I found duplication in uniquestandard.com, articlesbase.com, oddees.net, www.tumblr.com and www.cracked.com as well.
I hope this additional info helps track the thieves and know where to send the infringement report to.
Give it hell, hubbers!
I checked it out, but I don't write much that would fit it her site, and didn't find anything of mine.
I know from experience, though, that when the host is inundated with DMCA's they are quick to shut down the offending site. Make it happen - get rid of this thief before she can earn anything and too late to make another site in time for Christmas.
whether they have adsense or not on the website, they are stealing your work.Google can remove their website from their listing.
I try to give some the benefit and ask if they will link to my article instead..of being removed altogether
here's a link for a few more of her sites
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.ph … e;u=275220
The site has a section called hot news and I went back a couple months, and it has a whole bunch of different stuff in it. The is a whole lot of home design and decorating articles, and various other stuff such as; about movie stars, I.Q., politics, TV shows, facebook, and lots of other stuff. So it is not specifically only related to gift articles.
Can't find any of my gift hubs on there however they're not really mainstream stuff.
Surely google must downgrade them in the search engines as well due to duplicated content thats already published previously?
How does a DMCS work? Can it be put in place pretty quickly or is it a long term thing?
It only takes a few minutes to fill out that complaint form. There is a section on it in the learning center.
Ha, that's a joke. You'd think Google could work that out, but it struggles to. When I checked the search results for one of my phrases her rip off was on the front page. Mine was several places above, but still!

I found out this morning that this site had stolen at least 2 of my hubs. The more I looked, the more I noticed that it appears every single post on the site is a stolen hub, completely copied in most cases (including the authors' names and copyright notes, ironically). I see lots of names of...

My whole hub can be seen on two different sites. Though they gave a link to my hub at the bottom. But who is going to click the link after reading the article. Is it not copied content issue?Please see the link---http://gogurugo.com/article/carrot-deli …...

It is discouraging to find yet another website which has copied pictures of my family, my pets, my articles, used my titles and created a website that impersonates me. Today I've already wasted a couple of hours researching their host site and filing the appropriate DMCA Takedown Notices.When I did...

I found some of my content copied on anothe site. I put the URL into the WHOIS site to find out the information. How do I find the email address of the domain registrant? If it isn't obviously listed there, does that mean that information isn't available? The site that has...

Hi, Team - We know you can't file DMCA complaints on behalf of our work, but would it be possible to alert Hubbers when major scrapers are found in various categories, so we can all individually check for our content?For example - there were probably many more Hubbers affected by the 'Dan Gordon'...
