I have just had a red copyright symbol appear on a hub in my hub overview. I take it that this is somehow a copyright infringement. Can anyone let me know what the problem could be - never seen one of these before on a hub, and there does not appear to be any news about it in the forums /hubpages posts.
When I go into the hub, there are no warning messages shown, as with other problems such too many tag warnings.
That's unusual- there should be more information in the black bar at the top of the hub, along with a link to where the hub has been copied and more information for lodging a DMCA complaint.
Yeah. I think the copyright symbol may mean I have infringed it; a hubpages violation. Maybe Ive had a complaint. Ive made some changes but its still there. But then again, if I had done something wrong, I would have thought I would be directly contacted about it, not hubpages. certainly in the first instance at least.
I'm sure all will become clear in time.
It means someone has copied it. Click on "copied hubs" in the black box and it will tell you where it is copied.
Maybe. I have one on one of my hubs, too. When it appeared I looked and looked, but could find no copy anywhere and the message didn't indicate where it might be.
Finally e-mailed HP, who said it is a glitch, not to worry. It's been there for weeks now.
You're welcome. Just be sure to either fix the problem or check with HP - if there actually is a copy out there they will eventually unpublish your hub.

Does anyone know how to get the copyright symbol removed from a title? I had one of my hubs copied twice and have made the perpetrators take down my work but now my article still shows a copyright symbol next to the...

I realize we're lucky that HubPages invests money in checking some Hubs for plagiarized copies, when it's not their responsibility - so perhaps I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth! However, it would...
