    HI soy,

    Basically, there is no such thing as duplicate content ban or penalties.

    Syndicated content is important to the web and Google respects that.

    If you search for "pizza recipe", you will find many pages that are the same
    or very close. Why are they not banned?

    There IS a penalty if you have duplicate content on your own site, but
    that's a different issue.

    When you hear of a ban caused by dupe content, consider that maybe
    you are listening to the wrong crowd.

    you won't get banned due to duplicate content. look at any real news site -- they often all have the same associated press articles on them. besides, if u get your dupe content from many sources, your site will not be exactly the same as anyone else's.

    I agree that you wont get banned using duplicate content, but if your site is say a niche marketing (MFA) site Duplicate content is bad for your site.
