It seems that not a week that goes by when we don’t learn of someone’s work being copied to another internet site. It's a growing concern. This is, no doubt, a naive question, but is there any way we can check to determine if our work has been stolen/copied? (I work with a variety of software programs in my consulting work, but am a complete neophyte regarding modern-day IT. For example, when someone mentions to me, “sub domain,” they will get a window or a polite “huh?” in response.) Do we have to wait for Hubpages to inform us of this thievery? Any input on this issue would be greatly appreciated.
Block in a snippet of text and do a google search for it. If it has been copied google should show you where the copy is.
There are also companies that will search for you - "copyscape" is one such company.

I often intend to put a module either within my hub, or at the end, that might include some standard text/a link, e.g. that says "Copyright Me (Year) - Please do not copy and paste this article, but feel free to...

How do you put copyright tags on your hubs? Do you need to install some kind of of plug-in? Also, will it prevent other people from plagiarizing your content?
