Under copyright law, anything that I have created is automatically copyrighted by me, as the creator. Just because I distribute my articles, artwork, photography and more for free online does not give anybody else the right to steal it. Least of all you.
Apart from anything else, many of the search engines have "duplicate content" filters which penalise my site ranking (and the copy) if they find an identical copy elsewhere. That's a lose-lose situation.
