It seems the more I write the more I am finding my work copied. I think it is a losing battle. The one today at least also gave the link to the article they were copying - not all, but big chunks, in a Q&A forum. I am just going to let it go, since maybe I'll get some traffic from it.
Do you followup on all of your copied stuff?
There's "imitation", and then there's "stealing". I'm not particularly flattered by either of them. There's not much one can do about being imitated, but when it comes to having stuff stolen I follow up if at all possible; and I aim right for whatever account they have with "whoever".
There are a few I've just let slide after nothing much could be done. Who knows, though... Maybe one of these days, now that there's the "authorship thing" with Google, Google's system might detect "duplicate"; and guess who's got the earliest and the most dates, links, etc. to prove authorship..

In reading the forum post from two years ago when all Hub URLs were changed to Subdomains, many people reported that copied Hubs began to outrank theirs when the change was made. I think this might happen again and we have five forum threads going right now about copied content. Be sure to do...

I have found a few forums where people have copied a paragraph or two in a forum discussion from one of my Hubs. Usually when they are discussing products which I write about.How does Google view this in terms of duplicate content? Do they know people cut and paste into in forums and ignore...

I am wondering how much a hub gets penalized when it is posted in another persons forum post. I have a few hubs that have been copied word for word but with the link in forums where the topic is being discussed.Normally if it's someone just stealing my work I file DCMA and it gets removed, but with...
