I am in the middle of an unbelievable but true story of a plagiating Hubber who got caught because he spammed the comment section of the hub he plagiated... I sure would like HubPages to do something about this!
Good Grief!! This just happened to Misty Horizon, Paul Deeds ad myself follow the direction that GameGirl gave and you will be fine, I know it is certainly irritating.
The only website which HubPages has any control and authority over is HubPages. Just like you are responsible for the content of your pages, as the author you are responsible for defending your own copyrights.
Read up on the DMCA, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, if you are unfamiliar with it, as it guides just about all copyright behavior and complaints on the internet.

Then notify adsense about it and make him lose his adsense account.

Your first course of action should be to talk to this guy, ask him to take your content down. If he doesn't, or refuses to, then contact blogspot and adsense.
Thank you all for your advice and suggestions! It is really helpful & much appreciated!...

I have seen on the profile page of many a hubber, short phrases that discourage plagiarism by making reference to copyright issues. Can one create his/her own phrases to discourage copying, and once you place such a statement on an article or profile page, is there a follow-up that you need to do,...

AdSense account not approved because it is associated with BlogSpot. I have deleted my BlogSpot account, and am trying to associate AdSense account request information with HubPages, but when I go to the AdSense site, it won't let me make the changes. Any suggestions?

How do you Hubbers deal with it when people copy your Hub?I admit I have been VERY lax on the issue of people copying my Hubs but recently it's gotten bad. Today I found my PET rat article copied on a pest control blog! That was the first time I've been really POed about a copy and paste. So I am...
