Personally, I'm not sure I agree with that assessment of the situation ... It may be true on occasion and it's always good to review your site, but the recent comments from Google (linked around here somewhere) indicate one of the things they may try is swapping the original source in to the results when a syndicate out ranks it, which to me says they understand there's an issue and it's not necessarily a problem with the original site (page) ... IOW: I doubt most people are going to 'fix their way' into the top spot if they're being out ranked by a scraper.
When the tedsters run into issues with it occasionally, it says to me it's probably not the origination site that's the issue, but rather the weighting system.
