What do you do when someone copies your article and paste elsewhere?
I guess if you know they've done it, then contact them citing your copyright to the material, the date you posted it, and ask them to remove it.
Also, if there is the facility to do so, post a comment to their version of your article repeating this, that they have breached copyright and that the article belongs to you and asking them to remove it. Provide a link to your genuine version of the article.
If this doesn't work, contact the administrator of the site on which your article has been illegally posted explaining the situation and asking them to remove the post.
Hopefully one of these will work.
While contacting the administrator of the site is a good idea, I've found that they rarely respond. More likely than not you're going to have to file a DMCA complaint with google. Doing so will get the url of the duplicate removed from the google search engine. It's not the perfect solution, but for me it has been the only solution. There's a great article here on hubpages that describes the process:

I know I've seen this elsewhere online, where you can't actually copy text or images. You can view pictures but not download them or even embed them. Would it be possible to do this at all? At least it would cut down on manual scraping attempts - although content could still be harvested via RSS...

HubPages alerted me that this hub had been copied: http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Amazing-Lif … ine-McCoy, and so I wrote the editors of that website and asked for it to be removed. I got this back (see below). I am just appalled. I'm not good at confrontations and have no idea what to do. The...
