To minimize duplicate content issues you could publish the press release content on your website firstThat's really a great idea which we are following already.
Personally I would prefer to rewrite the press release and avoid any possible duplicate content issueThat's really a good suggestion. I will keep that in mind :-) Btw, what about some websites which pull the press releases and publish on their website? Or there are some PR sites which distributes the content across some other PR sites that are in their own network?! I have seen this several times.
