I used to be plagued by content scrapers on a 12 year old site until I set up Google+ Authorship on all pages last year. I just checked several new pages and none of them have been scraped. So anyone plagued by scrapers may want to try it.
Lorel - Thanks for posting this. I've previously cited some threads and posts that discuss integrating Google+ authorship with PuSH feeds to notify Google before wider publication of the standard feed, and I'm reposting them in this thread....

Any further details you can provide would be helpful. Unfortunately, most here seem to be more interested in complaining about Google than in investigating what might be done to fix things.
