Copying

    Do people actually think that just because they copy their hubs from Google Books that they won't be found out? Crazy.

    Again...I should not Hubhop before breakfast.

      I saw that while doing editing on another content site.  People don't understand the difference between copyright infringement and duplicate content.  No, there is no legal problem with copying public domain material (most of the time) Yes, it is still duplicate content.

          That's awesome! Lets break the law and HP TOS at the same time!

          Sorry I haven't had my breakfast (read coffee) yet, that's the best sarcasm I can muster...  I shouldn't answer threads before coffee.

          What's the difference between public domain sites and everything else on the web?

            Public domain materials can legally be adapted and/or copied.  People that copy non-public domain works can be held responsible in civil courts or at least risk losing their advertisers... etc.

                Public domain that is current is generally very clearly denoted.  If it doesn't say something very close to "This material has be entered into the public domain" then it is likely copyright protected.  Otherwise, most federal government publications are public domain.  Almost everything produced before 1923 is also public domain, as it's copyright has expired.
