but wouldn't adsense just close their adsense account?
And would't those scraper blogspot pages still be INDEXED in the google SERPs (and wouldn't his pages still be demoted due to google thinking the scraper sites are the original and his are the duplicates?)
Of course, but you're removing the primary motivation for these types of scrapers.
Also, if they attempt to open up a new AdSense account, they'll either have to manually clean up those pages containing the offending images, or dump them altogether. (Maybe; depends on how thorough AdSense's evaluation actually is.)
Yeah, it may not get your rankings back, but at least you prevent someone else from making money off of your content.
