Are you asking if it's OK to copy someone else's work and present it as your own?? Seriously?
Cuz not only would that be a violation of this site's "no duplicate content" rule, it's also a big-time douche move.
No. The words "copy paste" is the first clue to the answer for your question. It is never a good idea to copy paste anything and then you don't have to worry about covering your a** if you get accused of plagarism.
The others covered the answer if the article in question belongs to someone else. If you wrote the article for a newspaper, magazine, etc and still hold the copyright and it doesn't appear anywhere else on-line then you can use it in it's entirety as a hub. At least I think you can.
Not even if it's your own article from another site. The answer is a resounding "NO." Hubpages forbids duplicate content in any form, even if you wrote the article yourself and have it on more than one site. You could get your account deleted for that.
If I understand your question correctly, that would be plagiarism. If the article in question is one of your own (i.e., one you've written) then it would be acceptable unless you've signed it over as property of a magazine publisher or surrendered the rights to your own writing by contract.

I have just had someone offer to translate a hub of mine into Polish so it can be posted on Polish sites with a link included to the original English version here. Would this be allowed under HubPage rules about duplicate content?

So, I understand that the question-answer section is to inspire hubs, BUT it feels a little disingenuous to use the information everyone provided, especially when that information would fit nicely in a list. I asked a question about recipes and received lots of great replies. How do I make a...

So .... I was just flagged for a hub I wrote last night. It was flagged as a duplicate.I didn't even cite anything in this hub. I quoted a bunch of stuff in my Anaconda piece and none of it was flagged as duplicate, so someone must have copied and pasted my new hub. Everything on...

Are you allowed to copy and paste one of your own articles you have from another site to a hub?
