They have done this:
<!-- Mirrored from www.my url.com/page i built.htm by HTTrack Website Copier/3.x
I wanted them to copy and paste html...that's all. On top of that, they grabbed my entire site, and now my site is gone from Google, and ranking number one on their site url.
First of all, is this viewed as mirrored and therefor banned?
...and second, I did not want them to grab my site, only the pages I created for them and only by copying and pasting into their url.
Please, any advise...they are in another country and difficult to communicate with.
If it's the former, then the other page has inherited your backlinks and cache:[your domain].com/pagename.html would say "This is G o o g l e's cache of [their domain].com/pagename.html
In that situation, changing your page just slightly (even adding or removing a "." character) would get the URLs de-merged. The other site may still beat you for your key phrases of course.
The issue of how your content is used is between you and the other site; Google's policy for removing copyright material is here:
