I had a message from http://judibee.hubpages.com/ to let me know one of my hubs had been copied.
It was on blogspot.co.uk - I quickly found an easy online DMCA form to submit a complaint to Google.
I then searched for the first two sentences of my hub to see if it was elsewhere .... and found that TWO plagiarists were showing up in Google results - and my hub WASN'T showing AT ALL!
The Hub shows in my account as a "Featured Hub", so I'd have thought it'd have shown up in Google.... but no, it didn't.

What a bummer!
Update: I went to report the 2nd one and it's already been removed, so others must have reported them sooner. Good riddance to that loser.
Good news that the second remaining blog is removed - shouldn't be long for the other one. Several of us reported all four of these blogs last week, but for some reason they only removed the first two.
Gotta love that google hosts copied content on blogger and ranks it higher than the original. That is the mark of a company that believes in plagiarising and misusing content to suit its own purposes.
Maybe I should open a blogger account and copy all my own hubs there...... that could be the way forward
If it's just my stuff I won't be reporting me... it will be duplicate content, but hey - that doesn't seem to matter one tinker's chuff these days
