I have implemented "frame busting" via header and via htaccess. As I'm sure everyone knows, changing code in Wordpress opens up the door for having to go in there and "redo" all those customizations after updates. Regardless at that, it's better than doing nothing in this instance. I personally don't think busting frames is the same way as having Google acknowledge a wrong but removing them via DMCA complaint process and reinstating me. Is frame busting going to reinstate me as the owner of my content and the past 8 months? No clue.
They don't have access to my feed now. These guys aren't idiots and it does appear to my simple mind that once they have your content, it's "in the system". Once fetched, they don't need to go back. Sure they could add more content from your site, but even with what they took from me, it was enough to get Google to call them the content owners/creators of it.
Currently with my frame busting implemented? You can take a piece of my content, paste into Google, see them at #1 position for that text, click the link, go to their page, then it resolves onto my site. A round about way of getting to my site. How would Google view this at this point? I'm all ears. I have no idea. At the very least, I'm getting some revenue back for those articles and links. My site as a whole? That's more my issue here. Will it get resolved in Google's eyes or not or will I be the victim of duplicate content regardless of busting out of the frame situation.
I should add that Bing doesn't have any issue with me being the author of the content. My rankings have been unaffected by this site using my content in Bing. They have been able to tell the difference.
