Depending on where you live and the amount of money involved. Did you have a contract? There would be more details needed. But mostly you have webmasters here. Not lawyers. Perhaps someone could sticky you a good referral.

Got a record of the agreement and documentation of it being YOUR creation (aka your intellectual property) and on your site first? Or any other proof that you're the one who created it?

Copyright infringement calls for filing a DMCA to have the offender's site removed from a search engine's index but you should have your ducks in place. If you have the proof on your side, then do it.

thanks for comments.
Errrm its a very competitive market, maybe I'll just do a site better than the content they stole.
