I'm not sure what any of this privacy stuff has to do with scrapers. Nothing. Off Topic.
Scrapers are the bottom feeding scum sucking underbelly of the internet that have absolutely no regard for COPYRIGHT and will do anything to make their income by stealing your income.
Scrapers do evil, there is no other way around it.
Not only that, you won't hide behind IPV6 because blocking entire hosting companies and cloud services will shut down scrapers just as effectively as it does in IPV4.
Scrapers can run but they CANNOT HIDE!
... for long :)
Mainly because scrapers don't realize the content they scrape often identifies the sources of the scraping, honey pots, which help bot blockers ID and block the source.
