    If you can identify the IP address or referrer that the site’s scraper is using, you can block it from your site entirely: https://codex.wordpress.org/Combating_Comment_Spam/Denying_Access

    Another option would be to not block them, but use a plugin like https://wordpress.org/plugins/ozh-better-feed/ or https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/ to automatically add sort of a signature to the bottom of all of your posts in the feed so that folks know where the original post came from.

    And, you could also make your feed just a summary at Settings > Reading in your site’s Dashboard. This means that the feed won’t contain the full content, and folks will need to visit your site for the rest.
