The PRD signature can be "assumed" to be a scraper, hiding his identity.
But what you're not taking into account is I don't even steal content and as soon as you require public registration I'll start a second company to hold my domains with the same agreement as domains by proxy has, but it won't say "domains by proxy" in the registration info, so now you have your public information that you seem to think will fix something, my sites will still be private and they will still rank, but you still won't know sh*t about the actual domain ownership without a court order.
What do you think, the people who are stealing your content are suddenly going to turn honest and stop because they have to find a workaround to using domains by proxy or some other private registration service?
Your solution of public registration information solves nothing.
It's Google's problem to fix, not a problem that has anything to do with whois info.
