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.
There are some helpful sites mentioned in this article:

you own the content and copyright of it ..hubpages don't have to do anything with it ,you contact the owner ,send DMCA notice to their web host.,contact him ...
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. Having said that, from what I understand this ezine site, or whatever it's called, is stealing in massive numbers. So I feel like the admins of HubPages should weigh in. Plagiarism on this scale is going to hurt them as much as it hurts us.
