Yes, when the newspaper publishes the piece online, content aggregators and copyscappers already publish it.
A piece that went live this morning on the original source's site went out to the newspaper yesterday. I checked today and the first 3 pages are those who have all republished the piece, with the original source nowhere to be found.
I thought that with the authority of the original content source that they could combat through the clutter.
These are op-ed pieces, and newspapers don't have the habit of linking to the source's website. I was just alarmed to see consistently very low traffic to this type of content.
