    This morning I logged onto my account and noticed a copywrite violation. I checked out the violation and found that a person had stoled my daughter's poem I had posted on my hubpage with her permission. It was word for word. I don't know who this person is or if they are a fellow hubber, but here is a name to the site...
    Poets, check your stats to see if anyone from this website has helped themselves to your work.

      Hi Gabby, it's not recommended to post the link. Remove the link by typing "dot com" at the end. By posting the link we are automatically giving them a backlink smile

      Bless , it's getting more brazen , I even wrote my 200 hub dedicated to them , because this I knew , there are some very evil minded people on this earth and we must always be aware . Money is the root of all evil.

      Read my poem , see what I think of them.

    They could have acknowledged you as the author. So unprofessional. Maybe you can try to contact the site, or the author, and ask about it. Good thing that notices like this appear, we may never know that our works have been copied.

    @cardisa: Now I see the importance of using "dot com". Putting in a link is still a backlink. Thanks for this insight.

    Thanks Cardisa, I didn't realize posting a link could cause a backlink. I was more upset over finding it in the first place. I will just give the name of the site instead. Hopefully no one else's work has been taken. Thanks again for your help. Check your website and tell me if I should remove that one too.

    Thanks Peardiver, Haha, I guess that would be considered duplicated linking. Ugg, the nerve of some people that are too lazy to be creative on their own. Looks like I have my work cut out for me. I wrote the website to have it taken down. From there...well...they haven't seen my little mini bear of a child. She even had it posted on her profile that she wrote it, but it was posted by me with her permission.

    Thank thearbiter, I agree they should have at least acknowledge my daughter and I. I would have never caught it if it wasn't for the help from HP. I am still so furious that I can't type. LOL! Wait till they see what my daughter has to say about it.

    For everyone looking at this. I take full responcibility for this poem. I had written it but I was also reading poems all day that day. it must have stuck in my head like a song when I wrote it down. Most my poems come to me like songs and so this one must have stuck. For all of thoughs offended by this I give my full apologies for thinking it was mine cuz it came to head like that. This poem will be removed so to keep from thurther causing problems. I say once again I am very sorry. There was just a mix up thats all.

    Am so so lost..
    Please what is dot.com
    what can I or we do...
    It is so so right.....
    Poetry for me is a deep feeling
    Is not just writing down words on paper.
    It is going to hurt me to see this kind
    of act being practice.

    That's a pity. I think a law should be put into place about article theft.

    If you need to check if any others have been nicked, use this Google Tool.

    <link snipped> and file a complaint with Google or the Website where it's posted.

    I'm hearing more and more of my writing friends dealing with this. These people are out for a quick buck and don't care who they steal material from.

    But,  it was the hubber who was in the wrong here. The posts explaining it were deleted.

    I'm sure there is a logical explanation, I always like to give the benefit of the doubt, that way neither partie gets hurt. As for LoriSoard comment on a Quick buck, I cant even make a slow buck.smile
