I just discovered the one of my hubs was plagerized on a site called TalkBlog.info. It must have occurred recently, as I haven't received a duplicate content warning yet. (I was checking to see where my hub was ranked in Google and came across the copied page.) It looks like most of the content on that site is copied so I did some checking on other pages that looked like they could be from HubPages and found at least two others that appear to be copied word for word from other Hubs. I notified the hubbers in question by private message.
I found a hub in the Learning Center about how to file a complaint when you hub is plagerized. Here's the link to that: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/how- … -complaint
It appears the site has a block on so you can't find out who the registrant is through WHOIS. I did send a DMCA complaint to the email address provided, but who knows if I will get a response. Next step is to notify Google. I suggest others check to see if any of your hubs have been copied there and, if so, follow the same process.
Deborah, There’s a thread about this here
From the latest posts I think the site will be taken down very soon.
Just found that she had posted one of mine too!
They have ripped off in excess of 4000 individual Hubs and their reputation has just been severely destroyed! It would be a good idea to break that link that you have embedded here in the interim though. Cheers - continue to file your DMCAs.. Good Luck
I just looked and the site is gone! I usually find that filing a DMCA with the Host gets quickest results!

About once a week I peruse my hubs to check on traffic, comments, and just generally see how things are going. One of my hubs, "What Are The Benefits of Eating Bananas," had the copyright symbol next to it. I know from past experience that this means hubpages has found my content...

HP tells me my article Guns for Children has been stolen by a website called Brutalist Press. The offending website says it is "copied" by someone called Helga Dagmar. HP offers advice on what to do but most of it is quite beyond my technology skills, and some of the links admin offers go...

I just found out that this site is stealing our hubs and posting as its own blogposts! I mean they post our hubs EXACTLY as we have written them, with all the bullet points and the same photos, the same content organization, etc. Is there a way to take it down? http://365healthy-days.com

This forum is a place for you to post hubs that you think are clearly of low quality and need flagging. Committed hubbers should follow this forum and check these hubs posted for quality when they have the time. If a hub has been clearly copied (for example from a PDF file that the plagiarism...
