    I wrote and published How to Write Many Hubs From a One-Hub Idea before I found "Getting Started on Hub Pages Step #3 - Create Multipe Hubs Around a Topic."  I was planning a second hub to be linked to my first hub.  I even stated in the hub I just published that there would be a second hub.

    Should I, do I have to, delete my hub? or can I let it go?  I don't want to be accused of stealing or copying.  Please help soon so I can delete it if necessary.  I won't begin my second hub until I hear back.  I'm a newbie, which may or may not excuse my error.

    Ideas are not copyright protected. Titles are not copyright protected. This is a matter of US copyright law. I looked at your hub, which seems plenty original to me. In fact, is it not the whole idea of HubPages to guide and inspire!

    This forum is not often read by staff. If you want to be on the safe side, you can contact them,

      Thanks Website Examiner.  I've had a bit of a sleepless night worrying that I'd done something terribly wrong.  Yew!  I'll write the second piece and include the link to the HubPages hub on both my hubs.
      Thanks again for the quick reply.

        WE is correct.

        If you search the internet on ANY single topic, you'll find dozens of articles, many of which state the same facts, albeit in slightly different orders or with less or more information, but no huge differences.

        As long as you put your unique perspective on it, you can write on any topic you wish (within HP/Adsense ToS.)

          Thanks WryLilt,  My father used to say:  Enjoy your ideas because they won't be yours for long.  With all the billions of people in the world, there is little chance that anything anyone thinks of won't be thought of by someone else and most probably within 15 mins.  I've had other ideas and found someone else has had them also.  I guess that's the way of this world.  I just don't want to do anything wrong or hurtful or illegal.  That word "unique" really helped me a lot.  Take care.
