Is it legal to copy your hub to another site if they give you credit?


After reading questions here about copying hubs, I did some checking. I found one of my hubs, copied in its entirety on a website called For Men Only. The hub was about basic finance and using credit cards. But it did have "by duffsmom." I wrote and asked them to take it down. I figure any views it gets on that site, I won't get here and consequently won't be paid for. Is this legal to do this if they attribute it to the author?

    I agree about HubPages needing to be more proactive. Hubs should go through a quality review process before publishing; once published, the material should be secure so it cannot be copied and pasted.
