    I am in the middle of an unbelievable but true story of a plagiating Hubber who got caught because he spammed the comment section of the hub he plagiated... I sure would like HubPages to do something about this!

      The only website which HubPages has any control and authority over is HubPages.  Just like you are responsible for the content of your pages, as the author you are responsible for defending your own copyrights.

      Read up on the DMCA, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, if you are unfamiliar with it, as it guides just about all copyright behavior and complaints on the internet.

    Thank you for the link, Gamergirl... Problem is this Hubber has published my text on a blogspot of his, outside HubPages...

      Here you go -

      Notify blogspot about the problem.

      Then notify adsense about it and make him lose his adsense account.

    Your first course of action should be to talk to this guy, ask him to take your content down.  If he doesn't, or refuses to, then contact blogspot and adsense. smile

      Because the guy has Adsense ads on the blog, you may want to be careful. I would suggest just going straight to blogger.
