>>Much more dangerous are blocksof text; paragraphs or more, and great long lists of internal navigation and site promotional stuff.<<
I am putting up a site for a client who is in the concrete protection business. He has signed on with a supplier for his equipment and materials.
The supplier of course advertises what he sells to the service providers (they have a very nice and fully fleshed out site). AND, of course my client wants to use this information (text only) to promote his site, which is obviously not a problem with the supplier.
BUT -- what on earth can be done about duplicate content in this instance-- which is a completely logical use of dup content?
This is my first encounter with this kind of set-up.
Advice much appreciated.

If you don't mind not being index you could add a meta tag to disallow bots to view the page. Otherwise it would probably be smart to only include a part of the content then link to the full content.
OR maybe if you supplement that page with enough original content it won't be seen as duplicate content (just a guess).
I want my client's site to rank with the SEs. The supplier is not a competitor -- just a supplier selling only to the contractors that use the supplier's equipment and materials.
This is driving me nuts and I thank you very much for commenting.
