Do you put a copyright warning on your profile, of any kind?
It seems like I vaguely recall someone putting on their profile, that their content is indeed "theirs", and some other warning against people that would steal it. Do you have any suggestions in this regard? What is the best way to protect ourselves from content thieves, and does it include putting something, even a general mention that your content is your own on your profile?
No I haven't will have to check-out the tutorials ...sigh once again! I am new to the community and still learning a lot. Great question though ty.
Well, I do, but I think that is actually causing me a problem right now. My last hub, not yet published is a poem of mine, which I wrote in 1995 or 1996, when internet was not universal yet, so I never published it. The poem is not that big. To finish the hub I've put my usual feedback paragraph and copyright mention, which turns out it's almost the same size as the poem. So as soon as I tried to publish it the mention duplicate content appeared - it says a large portion of the hub already appears on other pages - large portion can be that part. I've sent an e-mail to the Hubpages to ask for clarification, but I'm almost sure it must be that, because the poem is mine, no one has a copy, so there can't be a duplicate... Anyway, I'm waiting for a reply, but I guess I'll have to take out the feedback and copyright mention paragraph. Anyone had a similar experience?
I include copyright message on my Hubs in the following format.

If you want to type copyright symbol, hold alt on your keyboard and then type 0169 with the numlock open on your keyboard (Numlock Numbers).
Hi Internetgeek, thanks so much. I have a really silly question about your answer, which sounds great by the way! I want to do that also. My question though is, do you just type that in there like that, OR do you type that after having it actually copyrighted somewhere? That is what I don't understand here. Like do you use a My Free Copyright type of site or something? Thanks so much for any help.

This place ehealthydietblog is taking recipes off our hubs and it ranks as number one when I searched for one of my reicpes. You know it would get the views before we would with the ranking it has.

I've been reading tons of forum posts on HP about their hubs getting scraped and copied by scraper sites around the globe. I was hoping that I could prevent (or at least track) this by adding a simple copyright with my...

I just wrote a hub on making money with HubPages but wanted to make sure it's ok before publishing. I know you are not supposed to mention what you are earning on HP, but is it ok to use titles like 'How To Earn $1000...
