Is Duplicate Content Sp@m?

I’ve got to go with a big “Y – E – S” on this one but apparently the engines don’t all agree. When I reported the first in the list below I expected that it might take a bit but the duplication was so obvious (and from a MUCH newer site) that they couldn’t help but take it down. As of today, none of the engines have penalized the site and I’ve received no response from the site owner (surprise surprise).

So that got me thinking, I wonder who else I taking our content? And thus was born a short list of sites that have stolen our content (short only because I’m only counting some limited homepage content – our articles and blog posts are likely the most stolen). Note, links are to the pages just to make sure you can see what we see. :)

Now that’s just from some phrases on the homepage and without listing proxies. Eventually I’m going to have to just set aside a couple weeks of one of my guy’s time to ransack the net and find all the offenders. Thanks thieves, it’s only going to cost us lost productivity and a couple thousand dollars in employee time.
