I regularly check for stolen content myself, I appreciate the little red C HP provides but it cannot be relied on, it can take weeks for HP to find a copy.
Anyways, I found this site, it has about a paragraph of my Hub on the site but it does provide a link to my Hub here on HP, but it does however look a little different, the top ad banner is really small, there might be something else fishy going on there.
The Hub doesn't get/never got much traffic but the score has just gone upto 100, so I'm wondering how much the copied content is really affecting it.
What is everyone else's thoughts?
I will provide the link but break it up a bit.

What does everyone else think? File the DMCA or consider it as a free backlink?
I don't know which article is yours, but all of those links click through to another page on that same website. In other words, those aren't the normal snippets you see with a link to the full content.
If they are not linking to your Hub, nail 'em. The site is hosted by: hostdime.com, an American company. Send the DMCA on the form here:
If you believe that a site is using your copyrighted content without your permission, then a DMCA NOI may be appropriate.
You can find instructions for issuing one here in the Learning Center.
