Talk about not working well, it's not just that scrapers are outranking our original content, it's that MFA sites with nothing but title tags and YouTube scrapes are dominating.
I tried searching for a pretty common automotive emissions issue this morning, and the #1 result in Google was a site that framed a YouTube video with the text from YouTube and the title of the video as the title. That's the whole page. Why not just send searchers to YouTube instead?
BTW, the last time I had this problem with the car, I made a little YouTube video about it. Yes, it was my video coming up #1 in the results on a MFA site:-)
