Why does Google penalise original articles


I've read a number of comments about people who have had their work copied and re-published by someone else, and then have had their own (original) article penalised by Google, as if that was the copy! They then have to send out something called a DMCA complaint (whatever that is). Google (apparently), has God-like knowledge of all things, so surely it knows what date each article was published - Is it beyond their wit to confir "original" status to the first instance of any article, and "copy" status to all subsequent publications.
