    Because the duplicate content penalty isn't as bad as most people think. Lyrics sites, news sites, and sites that scrape from newsgroups are perfect examples.

    Another example of the duplicate content myth.

    Agreed. Usually the script you use for these types of sites will get you penalized/booted before the duplicate content will.
