I've been working at getting my content off this site with no luck. I've notified the site and Google, but I found more hubs on the site. It is a guy named Danny Calloway copying them there.

There is a list of links at the bottom of the page, if you want to search for one of yours.
First, please destroy that link. Put an extra space in or after the www maybe. Never give a thief free backlinks from a respected site such as HP.
Second, google has nothing to do with this site and cannot remove anything there. Find the host, using a whois service, and file your DMCA there. You can also file with adsense, as theft is against their rules, in the hopes they will cancel the adsense account.
Send the DMCA to this email address and they will remove your content:
Thanks. I'll try that. I've been emailing them, but I might have been using the wrong email address.
The site is a user-generated content site, like YouTube or HubPages. It's reputable and it has always responded promptly to my removable requests. The email I posted is the correct one to use. Let me know if your content isn't removed within a few days.
This is from their Terms of Service:
"7. IBO has a zero-tolerance policy for plagiarism. IBO recognizes that blogging is a heavily referential medium and that bloggers frequently cite and quote from each other’s work. Such citations might be protected under the legal doctrine of fair use. However, IBO will remove any post that crosses the line from fair use to plagiarism, at IBO’s sole discretion. Authors who knowingly submit plagiarized work may be banned from IBO communities."
Google can only remove the website from their search result after filing DMCA. To take down the content, contact the host. If host is negligible about request then I ma sorry to say there is nothing you can do other than writing new content.

There is so much of this going on that it may not be worthwhile to mention. Since I know that this site is not cooperative, I sent my DMCA complaint to Google. My hub is copied word for word with all the lovely photographs and even a link to another similar hub. It probably is my best hub with lots...

That is another copying site which has been stealing our hubs from Hubbers at Hubpages. My hub How to Cure Vitiligo Naturally was copied and pasted onto this website: <link snipped> under the name "Zimmer". This bad guy changed the pictures but didn't event bother to...

Where else do the amazing author's on Hubpages display their work? Considering Hubpages is very fragile at the moment, I am researching a split of my hubs to another site as an insurance against hub pages going down. I've been told I have hubs that now 'shine' - I'd like these to twinkle on another...

While searching for copied hubs on one of the sites already mentioned in the forums, I've found another one. Again, it appears to be a complete copy, albeit a poorly executed one. Worryingly, I found that in two instances, when I searched a chunk of an article to find the original...
