I've been hearing a lot about buying and selling content online lately. I don't see myself going that way anytime soon, but I do have a question about how it works:
If I buy an article that's been pre-written, and is being displayed on a content website, wouldn't I be flagged by google as using duplicate content?
Yes - sort of. Easy way to deal with it is to only buy unique content, written for you.
Most content websites have varying licensing purchase options (unique) and do not actually have the full text of the article indexable.
Just because you can read it, doesnt mean google can
WryLit, there are companies/sites that hire writers to write what they want for their website (as you know). The writer (I've done this) gets the assignment, a price is agreed upon, and the deal is often that there's no byline. The writer has no rights to the article. So, if "Susie's Nail Salon" posts an article Mary was hired to write, Susie's Nail Salon site is what gets the ads. People hire writers from anything like $10 (maybe even 5) for a short article. I've sold "ready-written" stock stuff on, for example, Helium. Sometimes the deal was that I wasn't paid much but could leave the article for future licensing. Other times, I was asked to "sign" that I didn't have the article anywhere else and sign away all rights to it.

A few of my hubs have been copied by a site hosted by GoDaddy. I looked up their page about copyright infringement and something about the DMCA wording and the way that the counter notice was worded made me a little nervous. The GoDaddy reaction to copyright infringements seemed too extreme to me....

Let's say you see an article on someone's blog and website and they've got good information, but their entire article is extremely poorly structured, poorly worded, and just a gloppy mess.You could easily take the information they present and present it in a totally new way essentially entirely...

I notice several disgruntled Hubbers on Eric's new Hub, saying they're leaving HubPages because of the duplicate content flags.They seem to be misunderstanding what the dup content flag is all about - either they think they're being penalized, or that the flag means they have to delete the Hub.I...
