File a DMCA with Google.

Yep ...that's already done
Albeit, the main issue is how to make google consider original content effectively.

Gotta point out that the thread title leads one to expect an entirely different question: "How do I make my scraped (not, ahem, scrapped) content look original?"
Sounds as if your competitor has figured out the answer.

Everyone is free to think as they wish and subjectivity is endless...but the main query still remains un-responded :P

Are you (or your client) using authorship markup to claim ownership of the content? I've read conflicting opinions on whether or not this will ensure you're credited as the original author by Google, but it seems like a significant advantage if you publish content first and claim it with Google authorship.
(*gasp* An advantage to the existence of Google+?!)

I always prefer to write a article content by myself through this i get a original and duplicacy free content which helps me alot in getting a good traffic for my site.

Your client should fill their copy with references to themselves, their brand name and their unique points. Full scrapers will have to take it out, or else their content will look like nonsense. I know this won't do much for Google's decision about which is the original, but you can't rule out the algo getting smarter, and it also increases the % of difference between your client's version and the copy.

You want to do everything you can to make sure their content is indexed first. Try submitting it to social bookmarking sites. I know that most social bookmarking sites won't drive a lot of traffic but at least it will stimulate some activity around the original post and hopefully get the crawlers first. Also make sure you're promoting it via social media site like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn if applicable. Have your client's share it on Google+ and +1 it as well. The more activity you can get around their content as soon as it goes live the better.
