    My article appears above the copied one in search  http://stopthumbsuckingblog.com/tag/money/
    What do you think I should do?  Will that cause me to lose traffic I know some sites allow this like about.com I really don't see how that benefits the writer.

      If the other site is using Google Adsense then send them a DMCA notice and Google will take care of that

        I don't think they are I will have to check.  What happen if they don't have google ads?

    You can ask Google to remove the site from their search results

      HubPages has enough reputation that it doesn't not need a backlink from a copying site. File a DMCA and teach them a lesson. Never spare such people who do illegal activities so bravely.
      The end decision is yours after all, decide what you think best

    There is a section in the learning center (link at the bottom of this page) about filing DMCA's.  Study it and get those things out.  The net doesn't need more thieves.
