I think Lieberman here is barking the wrong tree, with duplicate content (descriptions from manufacturer) his business has been getting revenues that he was not deserving to get. So the right answer here is - tough luck, where's YOUR business plant? Did you plan to depend on manufacturer's descriptions and free traffic from G forever?
im pretty sure that manufacturers WANT shops to use their descriptions. they spend a lot of money on branding their stuff. they come up with selling points and slogans to make their products stand out. if all the shops suddenly started binning their descriptions on masse because of google, that is only going to annoy the manufacturer.
imagine if you submitted an advert to all the newspapers and magazines, and every single one rewrote it before going to print. would you be happy?
because that is what google are asking us to do.
