    Have  you heard of this site?  http://www.linkedgem.com/ My latest short story was stolen by them.

    I finished my latest short story and published it just after midnight on December 7, 2015. When I got home from work today, my HP story had been unpublished due to duplicate content.  HP helped me find the culprit.  The also have a podcast called What's Your Story?  It is on Wordpress.  I can't find a way to contact them, and I would like to begin that way if possible.  I'm snooping, but haven't found out who they are or how to contact them.  There are lots of articles/stories/poems on this site, so I'm sure other hubbers have been robbed. If you have any information on this site, let me know.

    This is terrible. I know you can send a cease and desist letter if you can find them. You can also send a take down letter to the webhost. I wish you well in getting this issue resolved to your satisfaction.

    Please let us know your progress. This is the stuff a good hub is made from, too. Most of all, don't let this discourage you from writing.

    It is a back-handed compliment if you think about it. Your work is so good someone wants to steal it. I have trouble giving mine away for free!

      This site actually has taken my story down.  I'm glad, because I want to use it in an upcoming competition. The other site that stole one of my articles still has not taken it down. There are lots of HP articles on that one. See my other Q/A on that.

    I do not know anything about this site. How terrible this happened to you. A few years back a foreign company stole several hubs and published them as theirs. They were finally shut down. I am going to check this out. Thank you for sharing this information.

      The other site is a real problem.  There are hundreds of HP articles there.  See my other Q/A thread on that one.  That is a really serious problem for HP.  With all that duplicate content, Google lowers the rating for the hole site and each of us.
