This is a direct consequence of producing "free" content that can be
copied to any URL. Every copy is a kind of fork, since it isn't
automatically updated when the source is updated (and vice versa), and
since the readership is split between the various site owners. If
copying is unfortunate, then "free" contents is the wrong method.
But I think the consensus is that "free is right" and thus copying,
duplication and forking must be good.
Perhaps Google is the problem, since it points to websites (providers)
and not to contents. It recognizes that two pages are on the same
site, but it is not nearly as good to recognize that two pages have
the same contents.
