What do you do if someone plagarizes/posts your hub somewhere else?
I googled my review and this result was in the top 10 results. it says the author is Katrina Hall (not me), but has a link to my hub. Not sure if this is good/bad, because it is in fact linking to my hub, but someone has posted their name to it. Imitation is the best form of flattery? Or what purpose does this person have to post my review as their own?
This is the link in case it helps answer my questions: http://www.freearticle.co/automotive/rv … asa-osawa/
It has a link to my hub.
I have never had this happen to me. Good question though. I don't understand why someone would steal your work and link back to you. I will be watching the answers with great interest. Thanks.
If you want to, I would say, first contact Katrina Hall or the site administrator and tell them to either mention you as the author of the original article or take it down ( because any 'original work of authorship' is protected under a copyright.) I put a Creative Commons license at the bottom of my hubs in hopes that it deters plagiarizers, but with information so easily accessible online, I feel like its a matter of time before people start posting your content somewhere else. Knowing that, I try to write about topics that aren't 'too' original or I don't care if it gets plagiarized. Hope that helps.

(Maybe the answers to my questions is somewhere on HP; but even if any answers are out there on the site; so many changes have been made in seven-and-a-half years, I wanted to get the absolute latest with regard the questions below):1. If one unpublishes a Hub and just...
