Yes, the copyright holders should write to them and ask them to cease and decist. If you are not the copyright holder you could possibly contact the holders and arrange to write to them on behalf of the holders. It is an infringement of copyright.

It might be worth considering releasing the articles in future under a creative commons license that allows people to copy the work but that stops people from charging for it.

This kind of thing is exactly the reason that copyright is so important.
