    If I have a .com emd for a Romanian keyword,and I use the content from the Romanian Wikipedia can I still get it ranked to #1 or will it be sandboxed?

    You will never rank above wikipedia by stealing their content.

    Not true! You can steal content and rank it higher than the original but the original has to be on weaker sites.

    Unfortunately this isn't the case and has been a widespread problem for Google for some time. In fact, Matt Cutts recently asked people to report "scraper" websites that are causing them problems.

    I forget which site it was but there's a website out there that has a lot of programming threads/talk on there that was constantly getting out ranked by random scraper websites. It was the talk of HackerNews and a few other forums for quite some time.

    Regardless Google still has a problem ranking these scraper sites over the original sources.

    Stay clear of duplicate content. You're just going to get filtered out because the Search Engine is going to look at your site metrics and decide that the autority site should be the one ranking with this content.
