I recently found of my Hub articles plagiarized on EzineMark.com. I sent them an NOI (notice of infringement)
They reply, informing me that instead of deleting the copied Hub material as I requested, they've instead opened an account using my name and email from the NOI and transferred the article to my ownership. They inform me that I can delete it or keep it up if I wish.
I delete the article as I sure as heck don't want it on their site, and then can't find any way to delete the account they opened in my name without asking my permission. I email their tech support asking how to delete an account. Then I get an email back, saying they don't encourage users to delete their accounts, and why would I want to do so anyway? (they did say if I told them why, they would delete it)
So then I fired of a somewhat cranky email saying I wasn't about to ever be a member of a site that would sign me up without ever asking if I wanted to join, and please delete my account immediately. Still waiting to see their reply to that.
In short, watch out for these member-harvesting sneaks if you have to send any DMCA/NOI paperwork to them.
Have you received a reply yet?
I also find that there are other sites do this thing too.
AND..... What Has happened after this period of 7 weeks?
Are They Still Operating? Did You Get Chocolates?
Same thing here. I would just like to know how my article ended up on ezinemark. It's frustrating that article gets more views than those published by myself and position 3 on google for my keywords. I never contacted them, they just opened account with my name without any notification from anyone.

A person contacted me asking if she can use part of my article, giving me credit and a link back to the article. As much as I am sick of people copying my content, at least this one had the decency of asking me permission. I am wondering the pros and cons of this. For instance, if she would use...

Following the advice of a fellow hubber I did a search query on myself on Google. The first several hubs which came up were normal and then I found one of my hubs that led to a "Secret Search Engine" labs by another hubber. This hub has lost a tremendous amount of traffic and now it looks...
