Sort of. I've found three hubs of mine, two on one site and one on another site; neither site has advertising, but my hubs have been copied and pasted to these sites; strangely it has links back to my hubs because in the body of the hubs I had put links to my hubs; the copier did not link back to my hubs intentionally, the links were already in the text. There's no credit given. But the thing is, these hubs are already indexed and I know Google indexes the older work (my original hubs) anyway. To me, it seems not even worth it to do anything about it; there's links (accidentally) to my hubs and my hubs are already the indexed work. It's almost like these sites are just catalogs of information, no ads, just content taken from various sources and put on the site. I actually found out about these through Webmaster Tools, checking out who linked to my content.
