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.
