I'm wondering a couple things. Do you think it's just a matter of the person using your content having a better PR overall? Sounds simple but if they are viewed as a more important site, I'm considering whether it's being judged on that basis.
Are these situations happening on both search engines or on just one? I think if one search engine is struggling less than the other, then it needs some light shed on it. I don't think in the past we can say that the other search engine was doing a better job at anything. This may have changed in regards to scraped content. I think in that sense, if true, then make some noise about it via the scraper submission document. Communicate with Goog directly.
