I built my own anti-scraper system last winter. Got tired of scrapers jogging my bandwidth and stealing my pages.
It catches about 1-2 a day. Not surprisingly a lot of them are from reputable companies apparently attempting to monitor their online reputation. I had one company contact me about setting up a custom rss feed for them on user comments on our site. They said they typically use a program to monitor such information but it was not working on our site for some reason. :-). I don't mind them monitoring if they do it nicely. But most just tear through our site with little regard for our server.
