Is our PR low because we're evaluated as duplicate content?
Big rival site copies my content. Thus i am in the last results.

Hi everyone,
I've been reading this forum for sometime and i really find priceless info here. I have a problem. I am responsible for a magazine website. We keep its content updated by uploading fresh issues every 3 months (this is how often the hard copy is published).However website's PR stays at the bottom 0/10. There is that rival website(PR 5/10) which has copied our articles (illegaly) and since it is much larger in scale(includes job search and much more) than our magazine site it holds better positions in SERPs for our articles. So i wonder is it possible that Google keeps our PR low (6 months since i keep track of it) for evaluating our article pages as duplicate? And what can i do? Any ideas? Our site's been spidered regularly(once in 10 days) and has been almost completely indexed. No spam links, only unique content is what we offer...help.

Many explanations for low PR are possible - but you can do something about those reprinted articles and eliminate that factor:
