    I'm wondering if article rewriting (taking someone's article and rewriting them so it's an entirely new unique article, copyscape passed) is just as illegal as straight up copying their original article? One of my sites I have, the content is ALL taken from an other site (rewritten to be 100% unique for copyscape). Wondering if that site finds out, can they do anything about it? Or since it's technically not the same article anymore, im fine?

    There ain't shit they can do about it. Paraphrasing and rewording is a standard journalistic technique. :)

    No.

    Almost every newspaper in the world regurgitates their shit from reuters.com. And that's a fact.

    95% of the things you read have just been re-written.

    Awesome haha,
    A high percentage of what you've just read is duplicate content.

    But seriously, as long as your articles are copyscape passed then they're all yours. On another note if your taking all your articles from one other site, just to be safe, it might be an idea to find a few other sites that you can take your articles from so that you can mix them up a bit.

    That's great lol!
    A large proportion of the posts you have already read are duplicated.

    For real though, so long as your writing passes copyscape then it belongs to you. In other words, if all of your articles come from a single site, then to be on the safe side you should add a few other sites from which you can procure new content so you are able to mix and match.
