I don't assume that. Scraping an article and then "spinning" it by rewriting each sentence is a practice that Google already tries to catch. There have been several Google engineers posting about it on their Webmaster Forums. So if you see such pages outranking the original, and you feel like reporting them, I'm pretty sure they would take in the information.
