    At most? The worst thing that could happen is your entire site will be deindexed after being slapped with a pure spam manual penalty and you'll receive countless copyright infringement notices that could lead to up to thousands of dollars worth of penalties from the litigious site owners from around the world that you stole content from.

    Hi

    If you copy content from other website,then its depend on the original owner either to let its content used for free or send you copy right notice to stop using the content.
    If you continue to copy content, even after seller tell you not to use his content,then you may lose your hosting, don't know about domain.

    You can ask the original owner to let you to use his content by giving the content ownership

    Yes most likely the offended party would reach out to you and request you to move the content.
    However, if you are making (alot of) money from doing this then you could well get sued - it really depends.
    Whats the plan?

    Thanks bro for helping me out.
    I don't care about site getting deindexed or spam penalty or any other penalty.. What i want about most is getting sue'd. if i get copyright infringement notices , i will get some time to remove the content? is that correct?
    Thousands of dollars what does it mean?

    Is this something that's just happened and the copyright owner's noticed?

    Or are you asking from an SEO point of view? I mean, the main takeaway here is "don't do it" but if it's been done and you've been caught out, you need to get rid of it. Don't delete the pages but replace the content with unique content asap. It won't stop people proving you've copied it but you'll at least be mitigating your actions.

    The time you'll get to take stuff down after an infringement is not long. Don't muck about with this. Also, as someone who's had content copied, it really sucks. Knowing the person responsible got rid of it immediately rather than giving the author the metaphorical "screw you" would go a long way to helping you avoid punitive actions.

    Probably sell 100% duplicate content to others... ;) possibly to local businesses who are new to "internet"...

    OP being a "passionate writer", don't you still know anything about duplicate content? Hard to believe...

    ?? Don't use it now. It does you absolutely no favours, it's incredibly easy to detect and you could get some serious fallout from it.

    You can buy half-decent copy for stupidly cheap prices. You can buy good copy for less money than it would cost you to write it yourself.

    lol! Why "after"? lolol... can't you spend some more weeks, taking a long vacation to the Caribbeans would be superb, and then try and take the same decision AFTER you get the warning? ;) The original content maker can be damned for writing it anyway.... for writing the original content AND for sending you the notice, yeh, for both! lololol

    :D:D:D

    Read the article I linked to in my previous post. Nobody has to send you a warning; they can get straight to suing if they wanted to, especially if they saw you profited off of their content (although you apparently don't have to make a profit for them to claim damages).

    Rewrite the content youself, and credit the author/website back when you rewrite the article base on another article they can't sue you for it because it's your own content.

    No you won't have time to remove your content.

    Right after your copied content indexed, police will be on your front house right away.

    So either prepare your anus or write your own content.
