This is a really good thread and good info, imo, but I don't think we should call it negative SEO, because to me theft is theft and copyright infringement is copyright infringement, so let's not "candy coat" what it is and call a spade a spade.
It's not SEO to steal someone else's content.
It's theft / copyright infringement.
There's not one bit of true SEO in stealing from someone else. SEO, imo, is being able to make a site/page rank based on it's own merits without needing to steal or take someone else's work and pretending like it's yours.
SEO is SEO
Theft is Theft
No real SEO I know, or know of, needs to steal content to make a site/page rank. That's not how true SEOs do things.
