Why is Google indexing this crap when quality sites have sometimes trouble being fully indexed?
I agree with you 100%. You would think that Google could do something about this. All we hear is that content is king and if you have good content then your website will do well. I do have good content and I write it all myself but I have realised that the only guarantee with good content is that others will copy it.
If you produce enough content it would be a full time job trying to keep on top of the infringers.
All these social networks, web hosts and articles sites should really be more severe with abusive users like that. A big flashy warning in red about copyrights when they sign up. One case of blatant infringement, ban the whole account.
You are so right on this. Many of these sites are successful more or less based on encouraging infringers and plagiarists. Docstoc is one of them. Despite my proving my case they refused to take action on my last complaint and I just don't have the money to take them on.
