    What do you guys do when some of the sites you're competing against are blatantly using your content...not even spinning the content,but word-for-word?

    Unless you're a huge brand spending or spend a lot of money on Adwords, it's unlikely that Google will do anything about it. I contacted Google three times about stolen content and they never even replied.

    If yours gets indexed first you're not supposed to get the dupe penalty but the other guy is. However it doesn't always work out that way. You could always wait and see. And in future make sure your content gets indexed as soon as its up.
