We'd like to think that Google can accurately assign the "original author" of a bit of content - but sometimes they still seem to get it wrong. I'm not sure yet where their error come from exactly. It may well be a combination of their freshness algorithm and their desire to serve more popular sites higher in the results - just my guess
Google has a responsiblity to make sure that the original source gets the credit. This should be one of their highest priorities. By allowing this problem to continue for so long, they are showing a total disregard for fairness and justice.
