What is the Hubpages team doing about this plagiarism situation?
Have they said anything? Have they done anything?
They have helpful information in the Learning Center which talks about how an author can defend their work but HubPages doesn't actually have any legal rights or responsibilities when it comes to defending writing that is not owned by the site itself.

On an individual hub basis, I don't think HubPages has any responsibility. If asked in a courtroom, I'm sure they would provide the original publication date of your hubs, but they aren't going to search the internet for duplicates.

Plagiarism on this scale is going to hurt them as much as it hurts us.

So, Hubtivity is swamped with new hubs that nobody really wanted to write and nobody really wants to read. The natural (and excellent) dynamic of this Great Domain is destroyed. And those of us who have work to do or are less than competitive by nature can only sit back and wait for the feeding...
