Are quotes and excerpts considered duplicate material?


I just had a hub tagged for duplicate material. I did include some actual quotes, and noted they were quotes, and an excerpt from the Los Angeles Times. Are quotes and excerpts considered duplicate material?

    UPDATE: I wrote the Hub Team and after they reviewed my hub they republished it. As you said .. there were no human eyes checking it so it was interpreted as duplicate. It is now approved and up. YEAH!!!!

    I love your suggestion that HP could provide a way for us to check duplicate content before we publish. Perhaps you could suggest this in the Suggest a New Feature forum? Then we might find out whether such a feature is even technically doable by HP.

    I loved your idea, however because my hub was removed for my review ... copyscape could not find it. Thanks for the suggestion, I can surely use this in the future.

    So I gather that there is no real "line" that we know not to cross? I have simply avoided quoting AT ALL because I have heard a lot about people being flagged for duplicate content for quoting. But we DO need to quote sometimes for context!

    Thanks Time Traveler, I just found that out as the hub team approved it after I wrote them.
