WP RSS Aggregator, the leading RSS feed import plugin for WordPress, continues to go from strength to strength with the release of the WordAi add-on this week. The new add-on provides integration with the WordAi content spinning service and came about in response to demand by a good chunk of the user base.
Here’s a video introduction to the power of WordAi:

While RSS Aggregators seem okay, I’m not sure that an app designed to aid in hiding plagiarism of articles is something any WordPress bloggers, designers or programmers should be promoting. Without attribution to the original author, this is still plagiarism. WordAi appears to be an excellent application which performs a rewrite of original articles with the intent of claiming the newly formed article is an original, and raising legal and ethical points in the journalism arena.

WordAi is a tool that rewrites articles – how you use the tool is up to you. For instance, you can use it to rewrite existing content you have already written, so that one of your articles can become many articles. You can use it to rewrite other people’s articles, and at that point whether to give credit to the original article is up to you. The point of WordAi though is that it is supposed to substantially change the article enough that it is not simply a duplicate of the original article.
This strategy is very effective – whether it is ethical or not is up to the person using the plugin. I will say that this practice is incredibly common even among very big websites. For instance the next time you see a major news event, go to three or four different major news sites and you will see that each sites article is basically a rewrite and usually no attribution is given.
