Over the last few months I've found articles of mine that have been spun or rewritten, but that contain many of the same partial sentences.
How much text needs to be copied in order to file a DMCA?
Do I have a leg to stand on in this type of situation?
Edit: I found this which has a small section on rewriting text http://www.whatiscopyright.org/
I don't know the percentage but I filed a DMCA about one of mine that was spun and it got removed.
Although in the end, I guess it depends how well they spun it - if they lost all the keywords and it's not duplicate content, it may not hurt your article.
Was that with google Wry?
It's more a matter of principal for me - it just makes me mad!
I found several examples of this type of thing on one particular website that we all know and love *cough* and they haven't removed the articles. Every time I think about it my brain boils!
The original site took it down, but it was some type of rev share site, can't remember which.
I'm not sure which site you mean, there are too many that we "know and love"
EVERY Single Doc is a Breach of your Copyright.
Spun docs are created from genuine docs... therefore your infringement claims can always be substantiated!

Here on Hubpages? Where spinning articles is against TOS, and they refuse to take it down?
I'll leave it to your imagination.
All I can say is that the thief has done a pretty good job on spinning/rewriting which has made it difficult for me to know how to deal with it.
That's why I was wondering how others have tackled this kind of thing and how much text needs to be directly copied - or does it just need to be substantially similar?
I'd say it depends on the amount spun too. If it is almost the same word count, same paragraph count, and synonyms then it is definitely a duplicate. Funny how the big media companies can sue at will with SOPA but individuals go the old route with a request. The Corps are getting too strong.

In the past I relied solely on Adsense to earn income from Hubpages, however this year I was able to finally open a PayPal account, so I signed up for the Hubpages Ad program. As expected, I saw a drop in my Adsense earnings, but now it's practically non-existent. I was earning a couple dollars...

HubPages is very firm in their rule to only use photos for which you have permission to use. Hypothetically, what happens if you break this rule? I've seen many people using images that are clearly not theirs to use and I was just wondering if this affects them in any way...

As I read and try to learn about the internet, I keep running across people talking about content spinners. Isn't the content that they create considered duplicate content? Or not? Does anyone use them for any other applications? Are there good applications for them? I'm curious on what everyone...

I always use visual watermarks with all my online photos. I don't feel comfortable using my photos online without them. Almost all my photos that transferred over have them. I heard that photos with watermarks might be removed because they're not allowed. What is...
