    Is there a general place to report online copyright infringement?

    I found one of my articles on another site.

    Check out this article from the Learning Center. It tells you how to file a complaint: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/how- … -complaint

    Hope this helps!

      Thank you for this! I have discovered 4 copied hubs - thanks for HubPages team highlighting them to me! Will follow the instructions to file with DMCA.

      You are most welcome! Good luck; this has happened to a lot of Hubbers including myself. Also, do a search on HP and read some of the Hubs that address this issue. There's good info out there.

    I want to notify HubPages that a particular site appears to be stealing copyright material from HubPages. The site is http://www.asthmaandallergytreatment.com/ . I found five of my photos and some of my text there. I was notified by another Hubber who said that some of her material had been stolen. She told me where to find my stolen images. Would HubPages be willing to contact the site owner and tell him to desist? If Hub's bots are finding duplicate content there, it is a good chance that the duplicate content is on the other site, not HubPages. What gets me is that if the person had ASKED me if he could use some images, and been willing to give me attribution, I might have agreed (or not). But I want HubPages to be aware that IF they find duplicate content on any Hubs, it's that guy's doing, not the Hubber. From the look of things, he's using a 'bot to steal content, because of what he stole. You might want to check and see if any of your content is on the site. If we all gang up on him, maybe he will stop.
