Ok, I ll try to make it more clear:
I m building a niche website with a community and I will propose to some members to have on my website a profile page.
At the moment I m just dealing with this content as follow, I provide my members with a link and they can submit the content of their profile page directly on the website that I receive by email and if I accept to do so, I build their page myself (this way, I can control the content before it actually appears to the public on my website).
Anyway, the point is that, I ve noticed than some of them, when I check the text they want to display on their page, just provide me with the exact same description that they already have in their Myspace profile page.
So because in fact this will be one page on my website, and because the search engine will probably know that this text already exist on Myspace, therefore I m wondering if the page on my website might be ranked as a copycat and have a negative impact on the ranking of my whole website?
That might be ok if it's just a few pages, but what if I get 50 or 200 people/business interested to get a profile page on my website and wanting to do the same, copy and paste what they already got on Myspace (it could be the same related to any other networking page in fact)
So could this be a bad thing for my website to let them do that?
Do I have to request from my contact to rewrite their profile description?...
What do you suggest?
