Biz from the USA asks:
"Is there a way to benefit from content scraped from your site?"

Matt says that you should try and make sure your content links back to yourself, because that way, in best case scenario, the scraper will actually end up linking back to you, which he says can't hurt, but has the potential to do some good. Otherwise, he recommends that we don't worry about it, because scraped content will very rarely rank higher than the original, legitimate content.

If the content scraper is using spam techniques, and you want to help remove it:
Google Report a Spam Result

You may also file a Digital Millennium Copyright Act Infringement Notification.
A good example is here: Example DMCA Notice of Copyright Infringement - FutureQuest, Inc.
