The Role of Content Buyers in Plagiarism Fighting

Before you buy any content for your website or blog you should read this:

Quote:
Itís probably the most common plagiarism-related excuse that Iíve heard: ďIím not the plagiarist, I got the content from someone else!Ē

There are variations on the theme of course, a plagiarist poet claims to have posted the work for a friend, a business site blames it on their designer, etc. but the main claim remains the same, it was always someone else.

When you pay a writer as low as a few dollars per 500 word article, it’s almost impossible that they can effectively write the content and sell enough to survive.
Is this like the people/writers in freelance sites that offers their service very cheap just for a few dollars? I'm not a writer so writing web content is a HUGE headache for me, I get confused with the pricing very easily.

Some offer as low as $2 for what they claim as quality 300-500 words article, while some go way up to $9 for a minimum of 500 words article. And there are even some people that charge $15 dollars for a 500-1000 words article. Which of these 3 is the most convincing or at least the tells the truth? Any writers here that can verify this?

Why anyone would put something out under their name and not double check it's originality and uniqueness I'll never know. Even if you buy content that was plagiarized you're still responsible since it's under your name, people just don't get that.

I think that depends on where the writer lives, not going to single out any particular country but I'm sure we all know of a few places. In some less developed countries a few dollars goes a long way.

But having said that, as a new blogger I am strictly sticking to writing my own content for now.

Its the responsibility of both the writer and the content buyer to fight against duplicate content and not to promote it. However, I think the buyer should be more responsible because he has purchased the content and the original author will sue him not the writer who worked for him.
