How to best manage a copyright notification? Someone has copied my content on leg muscles.
I have talked about the longest and largest muscles in our human body since 2005. I wrote about it in many of my articles on swim fitness. All too often people are exercising without any thought to the power of the legs. One of the reasons I feel aquatic fitness doesn't have the weight loss results of other programs is the lack of the resistance training in the legs. For you see, our legs have the longest and largest muscles in the human body - this was my mantra. I have a copyright notification and I don't want the other author to remove the content - I just want recognition. Suggestions?
A copyright notification? Did they copy exactly what you wrote? Or there are just similarities? I'm an expert on the human body & there is not a part about it that I don't have extensive knowledge on. I'm sure there are people that are just as proficient as myself, it's highly unlikely your the only person to write about the longest & largest muscles. If it's copied verbatim, I'm sure you can contact the site it's on, or better yet, contact the person and ask/tell them you want the recognition that is deserved.
I don't consider it a direct copy but a few words are verbatim and I would simply like recognition - I don't wish for the article to be pulled. The only option I have through Hubpages is the full letter - which is great if there is full copyright but I need a kinder letter asking for a link back recognizing my work.
I guess I will have to go directly to their website but I would prefer a kinder note asking for 1.) professional recognition and 2.) a direct link with a subtle threat that I can file a formal violation.

Do you include a copyright notice in your articles? Why or why not?I never do this, but I see that a lot of folks on here do. Just wondering what the opinions are out there.

I have a problem. Encyclopedial.com has reprinted about a dozen of my articles, word for word, with no credit to me and without permission, and just keeps scooping more out of my hubpages. I cannot find anything on the website about who to contact, or the company that owns it. So I went to one of...

I'm so angry. Today I got the little red circled C warning me my content was stolen. A quick scan in the plaguirism checker showed that someone had copied one of my game guides word for word onto their site. Do they not realise that just adding "Source: (link to the LevelSkip article) doesn't...
