I found someone using DZBlog who has copied my hub. However the site is in French and the site seems to be based in Algeria or cater to Algerians? They copied my article in English, altered it slightly and replaced some words with links to Nike shoes and other ads. I don't see a report violation or anything on the site even when using Google Translate.
Is it even worth filing a DMCA complaint?
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I suppose.
Of course its worth pursuing! This lowers the value of your hub in the eyes of google, and anyway those dirty thieves need to learn they can't do this!
Email the site if at all possible. Get no action from that, email their host. You can also complain to google (not sure where the form is - someone posted it the other day) as well as file a DMCA.
If there is Adsense on the blog, right-click any ad and file a complaint with Google. Wait for them to take action and THEN file a DMCA complaint. Getting their income yanked will discourage them far more than a legal threat.
