TheMadScientist, that's what I assumed. However, wouldn't factors like authority, link profile, domain age matter? It just seems so contrarian to human behavior that a white hat site would suddenly scrape other people's work?
So for example, my site is white hat, with awesome content, a great community, etc. Someone scrapes me with no links, looks fairly spammy. I am the originator of content. Now my history should count for something? I wouldn't just turn around and copy a spammer's site would I? That's what I thought the algo did in the past, hence crediting me correctly for my content.
Apparently, that doesn't seem to be the case today....?
