    Depends on the country you are in I would think. Would most likely be best to at least rewrite the content of the website you are looking to clone. If it is highly competitive and you get it ranked well I would bet that the webmasters will come after you however they can.

    You won't get rank if you copy exact content .

    Cloneing a grate way to learn how to design a website properly .

    It not a bad idea , when facebook come out at college we had to clone the website of facebook to pass our exams....

    Css skills
    Logo skills
    Html skills
    Php skills
    Mysql skills

    So how it bad?

    We are not talking riping a website we are talking cloneing a website.

    Cloned site? You were going to have duplicate content which will penalize you in terms of ranking!

    @redarrow why should be cloning a good idea to learn ? U have been talking about CSS, Logo, Html Skills for what if I go through command line "wget -r targeturl" I will have a exact copy of the site without any knowledge of these fields. The Only Thing I would need is PHP and Mysql to let the clone work. So how is it a great idea to learn something about design?
