Well, that link tells you how to block the scraping bots.But how about human scrapers.This is particularly difficult to handle if your site has only a few pages as they could manually copy the content.
@kaled, Regading age, what if the scraper site gets indexed first and they do it by feeding the googlebots a lot of "fresh scraped content" and thereby keep them arrested on their website.
I guess the only solution to this is a way where the original content provider can ping google and other search engines to know that they have some fresh original content, before they release it to the world. (a sort of "push" architecture as against the current "pull" architecture that google bots currently use to devour (index) content.
