Sorry, I am having problems understanding what you wrote. I understand that you copied copyrighted material to your blog, is that correct?

Delete them all and start over. The owner(s) of the copyrighted articles/information can contact your web hosting and have you taken down.

It'd look bad SEO wise. I would write new content (maybe a new site title and domain) that's original and belongs to you. Its better to stay safe than sorry.

You should have a fresh and unique content on your own, not from someone's website you just copied. That would badly hurt your site.

Copying content from other sources and ranking them doesn't sound like a long term SEO strategy. Use fresh content, and by fresh content i mean self-written original content. Don't use any article re-writers.

As a writer, I suggest if you want better content, hire someone on freelancing sites such as Elance. Copyright is a serious legal issue. You need to take down the copied materials as you could face issues not only with Google but with other legal sites, such as DMCA and website owners.

Delete all posts and start fresh. This will help you in google search ranking.

Can you update us on what you have been doing since creating this thread with your website?

I was going to lock this as it's an old thread and we gave you the correct answer but I want to make sure that you don't need any further advice.

Thanks

I think it is better to update your all post. Just edit your all post and make it unique.

When you use parts of someone else's work, it's legally and ethically important to give copyright credit. Giving proper credit is especially essential when you use copyrighted material for profit as part of your business, because you may be sued for copyright infringement.

This is legally incorrect and poor advice.

Just because you give 'credit' does not mean you can use copyrighted material. You need to seek permission first then the IP owner may give you permission to use if it doesn't denigrate the original piece or the owner.

Another post I have to disagree with.

Giving "credit" to using someone else's work while using it on your own site, does not give you free use of said work. At the very least, someone who objects to finding you using their content/imager without their expressed permission, will ask you to remove such work. And at the other extreme (which isn't so extreme these days) you could be sued.

Yes, you need to delete your posts & start from scratch. But doing this does not absolve what has already been done. A liability has already been created & people whose content has been used have accrued a right to sue. Hope you've sought legal advice!

It is legally incorrect to use other copyright content in other blog/website page and google take the same as duplicate content which is not good from SEO point of view. it is better to write again the fresh content on that page.

Good point to make. Wayback (and other tools) may validate one's use of images/content illegally.

This is just plain repetition and helps no one.

True, also hosting companies like GoDaddy store site backups & these may be subpoenaed by the suing party.

Make your own content and build new website.
This has already been said. Please read through the thread thoroughly and try to add value, not just repeat things.
