I can see the benefit to content creators, without noticing someone can copy and paste your text into a forum post and this will ensure that you get a link back, but on the downside what I copy and paste should be what gets copied and pasted and it could be considered intrusive to override someone's clipboard like that.
i do it, and its good for getting a few backlinks. a lot of scrapers dont bother removing the link, which is good. and if you write a decent script then you can randomly change an array of phrases around too, so you dont always have the same link text.
