That's certainly great news. Just a few things to note:
1. This only covers situations where the plagiarized content actually outranks your Hub on search results pages. What happens most of the time is that your Hub just starts to fall in rankings but the stolen content does not appear above your Hub.
2. This form will not get the content removed; you still have to go through the DMCA process for removal.
3. This report will be used in-house by Google's webspam team to better hone the Google algorithm and to improve the quality of search results.
