Blatant Copy of my work. Answered

My Instructable has been copied and re-posted here and on his/hers website. What should I do?

My Instructable(for reference): https://www.instructables.com/id/The-4x4x4-LED-cube-Arduino/

His/hers Instructable (even the same cover picture): https://www.instructables.com/id/EASIEST-LED-CUBE-USING-ARDUINO/

And the website he/she advertises: http://www.projectpiles.com/2012/09/easiest-led-cube-using-arduino.html?showComment=1371009260993#c5622969510993122543

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you,
