Deliver Your Web Site From Evil (Part 2) - Use a Redirect...
(Page 6 of 7 )
11. Use a Redirect 301 in your .htaccess file to redirect from yourdomain.com to www.yourdomain.com
, (or the reverse, whichever is the most common way you write your URLs):
This stops search engines finding 'duplicate' copies of your site, and hammering you with a duplicate content penalty.

I wouldn't debate the matter with plagiarists. Give them 48 hours to remove your content, then inform their ISP. Accept no excuses, like "My web developer did it". That's the oldest get-out whine in the book: "Someone else did it, it wasn't me!".
Save your email correspondence as templates for future use.

For example: "Your ad is displayed on this page here blahdeblah.com/copypage.htm, check out my page here mysite.com/original.htm."
