Highway Etiquette

What are the rules when you fall in behind someone on the freeway or vice versa? I am assumming you establish your lane within a lane and stay there. Yesterday comming back from Galveston this rider fell in behind me on my right side. I had established myself on the inside of the far left lane but he was making me nervous when I wanted to change to the right. Everytime I wanted to change lanes he was on my inside. Then at one point I was ready to change lanes and he motored past me, if I had not looked I would probably have clipped him.

Someone please explain the rules for this new rider.

I will ride in the middle to not allow a unknown biker next to me .If you are going to change lanes turn on your turn signals & then give a hand signal .
