I haven't filed a complaint myself, but I know somebody who has. I know of
two such case as a matter of fact. There is a lot of communication,
settlements and exchange of arguments involved. The sites will not be shut
down. Plagiarised content might be removed by the Webmaster after some

Modifications to the algorithms are a different matter. This must have been
related to penalty imposed on mirrors, which is one of the big challenges
that SE's are striving towards. To kill mirrors, you must introduce a new
protocol or new mechanism a la rel="nofollow". You will need some signature
(for example PGP) assigned to content and content will then be submitted
with the signature to SE's...

...But it's more complex than that because people mess about with content to
make it fuzzier and slightly dissimilar.
