if a newspaper publishes my hub in their paper, do they have to pay me?
Pretty Legal thing ..
I do thing they should... its a matter of originality of a hub writer just like any other writer or Editor.
This is pure speculation on my part...
I do not believe the paper has to pay you, unless you entered into a cotractual agreement. If, however, your work was duplicated without permission, or at least acknowledgement, you should be due some compensation through legal means from copyright infringement.
A newspaper will never publish an article that has been lifted straight from the internet. Once an article is in the public domain, they may legally re-write the article or lift facts and quotes from it for free. Even if you have emailed your article to the features editor - and then they publish it - they do not have to pay you. It would be your responsibility to invoice the accounts department or the company that publishes the newspaper and chase them for the payment.
