This 'author' who founded the site copied one of my top articles. Probably a lot more copied content on there...

I have tried unsuccessfully to get my copied hubs back, it is almost impossible
Hubs get scraped all the time there is nothing you can do. The Internet is full of NO TALENT Lackies that think it's okay to steal the work of others and try to make a buck. And large companies could care less - it is what it is.
What I do on work I publish on my own sites is embed links that are short links that go to my affiliates so that when my work is scraped and stolen the links are stolen as well. And if those links get published elsewhere I will get paid for them. Scrapers don't do it manually and it would take too much time for them to edit the scraped content. So they are in effect doing me a favor.
So as you write try to think of ways that you can embed your content so that it benefits you.
This sounds brilliant. Can you embed links in your HP work or just on your own sites?
That works for some scrapers - sadly some just steal the text and the only thing we can do is file a complaint.
How did you know your work was copied? Did you use copyscape or did HP show your hub as Duplicate?
Please let me know.
I simply copied a small part of my hub and 'searched' for it in Google.
I have often wondered if we are really doing these thieves a favor by drawing attention to them. I mean, now most of us have visited their page just to see what they had done instead of just looking at your hub with the same content.
Not really - the copied article was ranked one below mine in Google search - so a few visits won't make any difference - in other cases I've seen the copied article ranks above the original so it's in the best interest of the original author to get it taken down.
Oh no, another copier of hub content. They target this writing community because they are after quality articles, and nicking them is easier than researching and creating their own.

If you are seeing a drop in traffic, start checking for more stolen content. After seeing a nice surge in traffic following the latest Panda thing, I suddenly tanked. Stats were not updated quickly, so it took me a bit to realize I was indeed seeing a 'trend.' Sure enough - there...

Please make a note of all of us in several forums that have found so many (or our) hundreds of copied hubs onto other sites. Read the threads because they contain so much information and then DO SOMETHING about it for all of us at Google. NOW.I've only just begun to look for stolen hubs and...

I realized today that one of my hubs has been copied and re-published on two different websites. I was looking at my Google Analytics and noticed someone had searched on a complete sentence or two from one of my hubs. When I searched the sentence on Google myself I saw the other websites that...
