Do I chalk this up to experience? "Stolen" writing sample (not HubPages)

I submitted a writing sample as a follow up to an online listing of freelance writing jobs. They were starting a web site and building up content before they launched. I was told I would be paid for the sample if I was accepted to their team. It was a 1000 word article. I submitted it and, of course, it shows up on a different website a few days later. (I searched.) I have emailed my original contact, but no response. Do I have a leg to stand on or is it just a lesson learned? What happens if I post "my" article elsewhere?

    Lucey - those are some very good suggestions. Thanks for taking the time to answer. I'm going to check the WHOIS database right now.
