Which tool do you use to find if anyone has copied your content on-line?
I use Copyscape.
I don't use any such tool because I couldn't care less if anyone copies my work.
I was using UN.CO.VER from textbroker but was recently disabled... so Copyscape is my only alternative right now.
turniton.com is a very good site which will find copied content even if it is from a book. Actually it is a bane to students doing projects and all because they cannot copy content from any resources
Thank you so much for asking this question!!! I hadn't even considered that anyone would want to steal my work until I read this. I tried copyscape per one of the answers below and found that someone on justanswer.com stole the content of one of my hubs word for word and made money from it.
I called JustAnswer customer support and they promptly removed the article and are also going to have someone on their legal department in contact with me.
Again... I can't thank you enough!!!

How on earth would anyone find out if ones hubs are being reused? For example Isabella found her hub copied and pasted on another site. Checking this out I saw quite a few on that chickies site that I've seen and had read on hubpages such as Jimmy's, rb101182's, VioletSun just to mention a few....

I was advised via HP's automatic warning about several hubs that "may have been stolen."The title of your article shows after the initial address that includes "ics21"The first time you click on the link, it does, in fact, take you to a page where a copy of your hub is...
