Has Google's philosophy changed on duplicate content mixed with unique and added value? MC and others often said adding value to such sites was acceptable.
Even the recently leaked EWOQ document said this - seems to me it obviously can be OK, but that is also a factor that complicates things quite a bit.
I work with one site that sells books, and each book has an author's biography on the page. Every title does not always get a unique biography - far from it, in fact - but this amount of internal duplication has not caused any Google problems I can see.
