Has anyone experienced this: Two local papers are reading my articles and stealing my topics. I have offered to write, or freelance for them, but they only hire their relatives. Is this legal? I know my articles are better, I have a degree and have been writing for years. What would you do?
I understand your question in the way that the 2 local papers do NOT copy your text and/or headlines. What they do is that they get inspired by your "topic" and then, having read your article, then they write their own article on the same matter (but with other words, and maybe even another conclusion).
Well, this isn't illegal.
How do you publish your articles? And do you write "followups" in which you "debate" the topic, and at the same time make it clear that you were the first to write about the topic.
PS: IF they copy your text, then you can sue them!

I emailed a few of you, but everyone should look over the hubs on this guys account at Flixya. Scroll down past the videos to see his articles. Many of them he did write the first paragraph and the rest of the articles are copied word for word from hubs. //www.flixya.com/user/mani8251 Add the...

I was just wondering what people's take on article length is. Do you make a point of including as much info as possible in your article going for longer length or if you can cover it decently in a shorter length do you prefer to stick with that? I'm seeing some articles that are well...
