And yes, it's a branded site...theirs, not mine.
@Saffron unfortunately you have probably done nothing wrong. Which is the ironic part of these situations. You said you have ranked for these keywords for a long time and all of a sudden these "branded" sites have taken over. This is happening more and more and it is sad to see.
Google is placing emphasis on big scraper sites because they don't really care as their audience ends up seeing the content anyway. The problem is what happens when all the little guys are gone? Who will they scrape then?
