You can avoid being penalized for duplicate content by blocking search engines from indexing multiple URLs to the same content and other problematic URLs.

As a rule, there are two major versions of your domain indexed in the search engines, the www and the non-www version of it. You need to consider the www and the non-www domains a single entity, whereas they are two different things. Either merge both the URLs or select a preferred domain from your webmaster settings.
