It seems like I filed one with Google this way and now I can't find it anywhere. I tried searching the forums, which is where I found it the first time.
My highest earning hub was stolen this week by no fewer that SEVEN other sites, five of them at FLIXYA, one at a site that I never can find the administrator for, and the other on a blog.
It's bad enough when it happens once, but this is total crap.
Pam - You can send an email complaint to google blogger, but not adsense. Oddly enough I wrote a hub about this not long ago. i am constantly getting my stuff copied - but you can file a bulk complaint. The Address and FAX number is in the hub. I don't have a fax so I do them in bulk in writing . Pain in the ass - and I think Misha is probably right that it is not worth it> i do get some satisfaction seeing the google ads disappear though.

Well, I can never get it straight. The copyright infringement form. Christoph Reilly posted a link to an email form in a forum a few months back and I can't find it. Google just gives you an address.
Plus, do I have to file seven of these things?
When it was just one theft at a time it annoyed me but if half a dozen sites or gonna hit my stuff at once, I don't know if it's even worth filing or arguing. Flixya is a menace. They are my #1 source of thieves--I'm FOREVER getting stuff ripped off by Flixya users. It's constant.
What would you do Misha?
Frankly I don't care much. I find it not worth the effort. I never filed a single complaint. That said, i am not getting robbed on such a scale, so I don't know how i would react if I were you.
The best you can do I think is to stuff your hubs with self-directing links. If they steal them in all entirety, you get free backlinks.
Oh, and it is DMCA.
I emailed HP and they helped me with mine when it happened just note the date yours was published compared to the others.
A couple of useful guides:
