Does it scare you to write, even though we know someone is stealing our hubs?
As Many of you know, another site, who I will not give credit to, has stolen many of our hubs. I know most of you, as I am, are very irritated and outraged by this, but does it not scare you to continue writing hubs, knowing they can steal it too. Are you afraid that they won't take it one step further and publish it in a book or something?
I love writing...just writing my thoughts but it does scares me when my hubs are stolen. When my answer to a question once, it really made me mad...it's a very bad feeling knowing that some shameless and conscience-less people stubs you in the back, I can't understand why they are doing that.
Thanks for the information. I never know it before. Now I am wondering why hubpages managers try to solve it. Besides, I choose not to be afraid, because there is nothing I can do about it but continue.
To be honest, I AM a little afraid.
However, that's not the only reason that I have decided not to publish unless that shitty website comes down. I am mad, furious, afraid, angry, and sad as well. I am really missing that 'Start A New Hub' Button'
For those who don't know the site, it is BigEzine . com, just find a subject, click on it and in the search bar type the title of your hub or even the first few words of the hub.....they are fictitious authors, run by one guy......Hunbbel Meer is the one who first broke the story, so check out his HUB.....
@Hunbbel Meer, I agree, I don't want to write for the same reasons and wait for that site to come down....I am mad, sad and miss writing.....and the start a new hub, I know that these things will happen, but I also think that the site you write for, should do a little more than what they are doing. I have written them, followed the instructions to file a DMCA complaint, have yet to hear a word......We shall see....but I miss writing.....
I am still writing. I am just not publishing. I am not afraid, I just don't want to have to keep writing DCMA's. I have other more important things to do with my time than write those. Like cleaning .
Hahaha.... not at all, maximum notifications I've had on this website in 6 7 months are 3. No probs, if someone steals and makes it readable, and I actually get any comments, I'll be on cloud 9!!! Gud luck chum!
it irritates me that these thieves are allowed to get away with what they are doing. personally, i think that HubPages should go after them. they have the money and the clout to shut such a place down. they insist we write quality, original hubs, and we do this. they SHOULD protect us. that is my feelings on the matter. it is not fair that someone can come along and take our hard work and research and steal it calling it their own.

Now it's not what it sounds like.I ran into another hubbers hubs, it was about five years old and it did provide some useful advice, but it was horribly done. I know I could write new content about the same topic, with photos, etc. I scratched the idea because the topic was very...

Is anyone else afraid of adding summaries to their hubs?In general, my hubs that have a summary do not do as well as my hubs that do not have a summary. All of my best hubs do not have summaries. I know it is suggested to add a summary to every hub but this makes me afraid...

I have just started, so I dont expect it in the near future, but how many hubs, or how many months before you start making money? How much traffic is considered to be good traffic? Right now I am getting about an average of 75 hits per day on 4 hubs. Is that good? What...

Thanks to ThatMommyBlogger for finding this site and bringing it up in another thread. I think it deserves its own thread to warn HP writers. It looks like a site called 2uidea-dot-com is taking newly published hubs and putting them up as their own at a rapid pace. It appears they have filled their...

Thieves are stealing our articles.What can we do?Internet thieves are laughing their heads off,all the way to the bank in many cases. All they need do is copy content, sit back and enjoy the rewards. What can authors/writers do to help stop this blatant criminal activity? DMCA filing doesn't work....

Sometimes I have to slap myself around a bit...I'm a poet, and I have some work that I am very proud of...but when it comes to sharing my work, online, or simply giving someone a poem of mine to read, I get all weird and uncomfortable about it, like I feel that at the very least they won't know how...
