The OP sold his article to the thief
I still see them at No. 5 spot for the keyword phrase and my site is not in the SERPs at ALL
I would also suggest using the google author or google publisher tags... see if you can get them to use it on their copy of your page as well.
I am ranking for various sentences from the copied article...
I advised you to obtain more credibility than the other site with more and better inbound links.
Don't get caught with unnatural links.
I'm looking into some of the ideas tedster mentioned.
Many here have talked about being outranked by scraper sites - even on sites that have a long history of ranking very well. I worked with such a site that ran into the scraper issue when Panda 1.0 first rolled out.
What to do? It seemed to me that somehow, the original site had lost its authority despite a powerful backlink profile. How to fix that? What we did was:
1. Use PuSH (PubSubHubub) technology [code.google.com] to let Google know immediately when new content is published.
2. Delay the existing RSS feed until Google had grabbed the new content.
3. Set up authorship authentication through Google+.
Note that this site uses a stable of ten well respected writers and it seemed that this could only help. It did. Within a few weeks, rankings came back and then just began to climb and climb.
@atlrus If your article is ranking nowhere - you have been dealt a penalty,
