I am shocked to find someone has copied my Hub in its entirety. Truly. In this instance, they have included a link to my hub next to the title, followed by my complete article. I like the back link, however I want the majority of the text on their site to go away.
What is an appropriate request to make of the blogger:
A - Remove my hub, you vile content thief! File a DMAC
B - Thanks for appreciating my article; please just link over to it with the first paragraph (or whatever is an appropriate amount for them to include???)
C- This is actually a good thing, and you should go back to bed and get more sleep.
It depends what the rest of the blog looks like.
If it's obvious most of the blog is stolen, I won't even contact the site owner or file a DMCA with them - I'l find out who their host is, and file an abuse report directly with them.
If it looks like they've made an honest mistake, then I go for B - but I usually add, if you'd prefer to keep the whole article then you can have it for $100. I have got paid twice!

I've run across several hubs by others that have words running together consistently throughout the hubs. It almost seems too frequent to be standard typos. It almost seems like an artifact of copying/pasting into capsules and perhaps the hubber isn't aware that it's happening. I've...
