There's an easy way to check if your Hubs have been stolen.
1. Go to the "my account" page and click on "export csv" at the top left of your Hub list. You'll get an Excel spreadsheet with a list of the URL's of all your Hubs.
2. Go to Copyscape.com and sign up as a Premium member (not Copysentry).
3. Buy at least enough credits to cover all your Hubs - the cost is 5 cents per page (i.e. 5 cents per Hub). Yes, I know it means spending money - but even 200 Hubs is only $10.
4. In the top right hand corner, select "Batch Search".
5. Click "Add URL's" and copy and paste all your Hub URL's from your spreadsheet, one per line.
6. Check the URL's look right, then run the Batch.
Copyscape will send you an email when the search is done - then you've got the tedious job of going through them to identify the real problems. Unfortunately you do get a lot of "false positives" owing to the Related Hubs feature, but you get used to that.
