    Question WordPress theme code - Duplicate content?

    I wonder if it can hurt my website if I'm using on it the same Wordpress theme like many other people online. I'm using the LightBright premium WP theme from elegantthemes.com and when I check my website on copyscape.com it finds duplicate content on many websites that are using the same WP theme like me.

    Copyscape finds the following: share on delicious dig this post share on stumbleupon share on squidoo share on yahoo buzz share on blinklist share on mixx share on furl

    Can this hurt my website? Should I use a custom unique WP theme for my website?

    So from what you are saying the duplicate content is some kind of social sharing bar?. So nothing content related in any way whatsoever?.

    Don't waste your time worrying over it.

    Of course if you have a good site its very appreciated to have your own theme. Now days there so much themes, take the simplest and begin adding new blocks and graphics, after some time u ll get unique theme. I think Google know popular cms and has some things about them.
