What do you do if your article is copied to a foriegn website?


I've found 2 of my hubs copied to a Chinese website. The site is actually built around copying articles from English sites and republishing the orriginal articles with Chinese translations inserted in between paragraphs. They provide a URL (not a link) for my hub and they give my name so they're attributing the article to me. I'm not entirely sure how I feel about this yet. Has anyone else had this happen to them? Is there anything that I can (or should) do about this? If there is nothing that I can do how will this effect me (will it effect the article as far as google is concerned...)?

    Thank you Alex, the non duplication policy is actually one of my bigger concern. My traffic does appear to be trending upward for no reason that I can explain so maybe this is the cause.
