Can I put things I write here on other sites? Do I retain rights to reprint elsewhere?
No, there is no duplicate content allowed on HubPages. If the content is duplicate, you need to decide which site you want it on.
You do keep your rights, though, which means you are free to take it off HP, and put it up somewhere else.
Question one: No.
Question two: Yes - with a qualification / clarification:
While you do retain your rights to work you publish on HP, and are therefore free to take it somewhere else, that ease of removal / transfer is not standard to all open publishing sites.
Take care not to inadvertently find yourself 'somewhere else' where the answer to both of your questions is No.
If you have already published your content on HP then NO, you can not republish elsewhere without major rework. Anything you put on HP has to be "unique" otherwise your HP hub will be marked as duplicate.
You can however use the content you have published on HP on other sites by doing the following:
(1) Delete it from HP and publish on another site.
(2) Alter the content including the title so that it becomes almost unique in its own right, that way you will not get marked as duplicate on HP.

Opednews has a pr just like Hubpages of 6. They seek 24, 48 and 72 hour exclusivity but they don't require it. You can publish...

The other sites are also my own, but with recent problems with my hosting, I plan on dumping them altogether. So the content is to come here instead.If I delete my articles from...

What is Hub pages policy about publishing on other sites after you publish on HP?Is there a time limit that you have to folow. For eample, on another site the site held exclusive right for a year, then you were able to publish elsewhere. Or do you have to delete the hub?
