Duplicates on the Web

There's a huge amount of Web pages – but how many of them are duplicates?
We keep on hearing about billions of pages - but how many of them are unique?

Suddenly I realized that QTsaver's presence on the web has grown considerably.
Looking at the pages more closely I saw that some of the links contained duplicate contents.

http://www.linux-magazin.ro/
Lampgroup
http://digitalmagi.com/
cissrv3.uwsp.edu/wdmd/resources.php
feeds2read.net/rssview-75.html
