One of my hubs was copied about a month ago and I only got the little red c by my hub a few days ago.
I sent a message to the site owner but they didn't reply, so after following guidance from Hub pages and a few other Hubbers in forum posts I sent a DMCA to the hosting company. They said they would give the owner 48 hours to take it down in good faith. Just checked the page where my content was, a nice 403 FORBIDDEN page comes up!
The entire site looks like it has been taken down or blocked!

Wonderful news, SpaceShanty, happy for your resolution.
Happy for you! Glad you got helped :-)
I see the site was hosted by Hostgator - I have nothing but good things to say about them, my own sites are hosted there and everyone is always so helpful if I have a problem. Well done on a successful result - gives me the enthusiasm to tackle the crop of my hubs that have sprouted a little red C this past week!
This hub helped me in addition to others http://hubpages.com/hub/Copying-Article … nt-Removed
I have succesfully removed 2 sites so far for copied content. Sometimes all it takes is going to whois.com and getting all their info and sending them an email letting you know all there info and posting their name, address and phone within the email. They are usually surprised that you are armed with that knowledge and quickly remove the copied content. 2 sites that ignored me, I filed a complaint and in less than a week, got an email from Google, and one from hostgator, that they had successfully been removed.

still new here, but the question is: what to do with a fellow hubber who has copied my article content from another site and placed it on his personal website?

I keep checking my stats here hoping to see many little red arrows. Instead all I am seeing is red copyright symbols! I have seen an increase in the past few weeks and again this morning. I have written to...
