I regularly check for stolen content myself, I appreciate the little red C HP provides but it cannot be relied on, it can take weeks for HP to find a copy.
Anyways, I found this site, it has about a paragraph of my Hub on the site but it does provide a link to my Hub here on HP, but it does however look a little different, the top ad banner is really small, there might be something else fishy going on there.
The Hub doesn't get/never got much traffic but the score has just gone upto 100, so I'm wondering how much the copied content is really affecting it.
What is everyone else's thoughts?
I will provide the link but break it up a bit.

What does everyone else think? File the DMCA or consider it as a free backlink?
I don't know which article is yours, but all of those links click through to another page on that same website. In other words, those aren't the normal snippets you see with a link to the full content.
If they are not linking to your Hub, nail 'em. The site is hosted by: hostdime.com, an American company. Send the DMCA on the form here:
If you believe that a site is using your copyrighted content without your permission, then a DMCA NOI may be appropriate.
You can find instructions for issuing one here in the Learning Center.

Why am I not getting approved for Google AdSense? I am a former squidoo member. I have 300 pages (many of which rank in the 80's-100's according to the hubpage ranking), and they are all legitimate pages (not sales-oriented or lacking in sufficient words). Some of the pages received...

Google panda is basically a major tweak in search engine algorithm. Its aim is to push the quality web-site up and lower down the ranking of low quality content. Unlike all previous update, Google panda is a domain level penalty. It means even if you have 5-10 low quality content in your site, your...

I wonder if one of the reasons visual pin boards are so popular is that some people cannot be bothered to spend long on one page. They like images and cannot be bothered to read text unless they actively searching for information. In which case, I am left wondering what does the future look like...
