I just wanted to know if copied content content is really a serious issue in deciding pagerank?
Many sites with pr 3+ are found to have copied content. Even sites like digg , stumble upon are in a way publishing copied content from other blogs ( i know that though other users itself are submitting their sites there )
Also one more thing : if a site with higher pagerank publishes a content from a site with lower pr , according to google who is having the 'copied content' ? i know that google will be displaying the site with higher pagerank, higher in search results !
