---- Scraped content ranking higher than the original source

However, what you have to understand is that Google don't care.
I think I do..., I write descriptions, the content starts to rank, here comes the Scraper, rips off the content, Gorg ranks Scraped content higher or just below my URL, cause there is Adsence on it(scrapers site) and/or original Writer might be a good candidate for Adwords Program. If they implement what we ask them they would loose 2 potentially lucrative revenue streams, as simple as that.
Happen just last week, I wrote an Article on Technical HOW-To, Basic Level(CODE) and recommendation to contact me if Advanced Method needed. Boom, 90 minutes later, GBOT Picked up URL and started to rank it for the Proper Words, Couple of hours later Bing Picked it up as well. Got 2 New Clients next day, One came from G, One from Bing. Picked up couple of inbounds from Community Members next day as well.
3 Days later, someone copies the content onto a very popular freelance site asking to bid on a project for the Advanced stuff. That content in turn gets redistributed into several other properties owned by that site.
4 days later I am on page 2 for that Article in Google SERP, and #1 on Bing and Yahoo for the Proper Words.
