If I post articles written by others on my site (with their permission of course), do I have to worry about duplicate content penalties/problems or anything like that? I just don't understand how the whole duplicate content thing works. I have an entire section of my site that is a collection of articles written by others, and I'm sure these articles appear on lots of other sites, including the author's, too.
