there are so many sites that are content scrapers ranking ahead of us with our content (or copied content from the MFG).
Do you know how they are scraping you? Most common and garden scrapers use your RSS feed - set this to summary or short and they just pick up the first few sentences, which is "fair use", rather than your full articles. Is there any reason why you need your feed to be set to "full"?
I've never had my content scraped, because I've limited the feed. Of course having URLs scraped so that some bot can come back later to post junk comments is another thing altogether. They only way to stop them is to ban IP addresses - they usually use proxies - and many use the same proxies, so once you find one ban it.
