A lot of people appear to dislike duplicate content. Many even go on to say that duplicate = spam. Here's my take on duplicate. Publishing is often about reprinting. If you check a couple of news papers, you often find that they all have the same story, I mean the copy, i..e, duplicate. Yahoo news essentially makes duplicate. So does Google news. Also we make progress by making a copy and modifying 5 - 10% of it. You can call it duplicate, as 90 - 95% is the same as the original. But this is how we create, how we progress, how we distribute and how we publish. Is "duplicate" such a bad thing?
