Their Facebook page is still up though. And people are using it to collate other stolen articles. http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=196994196748&topic=23238 Also, someone found a Paula Deen recipe that was stolen, and notified Paula - who has contacted her legal department.

When confronting the publisher of the offending magazine, she was told "But honestly Monica, the web is considered "public domain" and you should be happy we just didn't 'lift' your whole article and put someone else's name on it!". In addition to the story passing around online, Cooks Source Magazine's Facebook page is being overwhelmed with posts by users glad to explain copyright law to the wayward publisher."
