Typically if the content "scraped" is less than 120 words and there's a link to the original source, I *think* it would be hard to get a DCMA. I might be wrong, and if I am I'm sure someone here will correct me. As an additional thought - Personally I would contact the site hosting the material and request removal before I would report it to Google. Stuff from my sites is scraped quite often, but personally I don't care. But that's just me. My sites do well and I'm not interested in taking the time and effort to try to get scraped material removed from every site when I can be spending the time on my sites improving them. Scrapers eventually go away and die. My sites have been around for many years. My "main" site has been online for 15 years.
