How much of a second brain does it take to mashup content and display it on your site? Does this mean scrapers who do this very thing already are as smart as Google? Sorry, but I still see aggregation from wikipedia et al.
To be fair I looked up Philadelphia and what I learned is that I should make sure to write about things Google won't likely aggregate any time soon, otherwise I will get little traffic from Google.
Amit Singhal is indeed dreaming if he thinks he can essentially steal content and claim the users of that content to be his. When the owners of that content receive no benefit from Google for having been scraped I imagine they will see Google as they do any other scraper site. Why doesn't Google understand they can't have all of the worlds content without creating any of it themselves?
