My questions is - what happens when someone in our niche submits a news article to both of our sites? I wouldn't mind if just THAT article isn't listed in Google because of duplicate content - because I want to provide the most current news submitted by users - to the community. My only concern is that if the entire SITE gets marked for duplicate content - just because I ran that article that the writer submitted to both of our sites. (basically press releases)
I don't see a great outcry of news site being removed from serps so I assume not a huge issue?
I may be totally wrong though and it is very harmful.
