    Well I notice you're new here and you may not know there isn't much SEO benefit to copying content any more (since before 2009 or earlier). If you have something besides SEO in mind, then good luck to you.

    yes, as macdonjo adviced that will not help you at all and in some cases it could lead you into trouble

    better orient yourself into original content as there's where the money is

    That won't happen. But if you want to ignore what the 2 guys already told you, its your call.
    Don't be puttin a dumb face once you see it fail, people already were nice and advised you.

    I don't really see the benefit of doing so.

    Your website would not rank for the questions answered, and google will penalize it for duplicate content.

    I would like to say if you are not good enough to take advice from valued members of this forum then whats the point of asking that is it illegal or have copyright issues??
    Have ears to listen to everyone and then analyze and think twice before speaking and putting them to actions.

    It is not ok to copy contents of yahoo or any other site to your site. Search engines might penalize your site and your site might not see any traffic from the search engines in future.

    Don't copy paste content from "Yahoo" to your site. Search engine might penalize your site. So stop doing it.

    You are wasting your time OP, instead work on something legit and meaningful. Copy pasting content will not rank your site anywhere even remotely near the 1st page..

    Even if you get traffic, you can't monetise it with, say, adsense 'coz its against its policy. So, better stop digging the rock to find nothing..

    i don't know about the legality issues that arise from pasting content that's USER MADE (1 user asks, 1 user answers)... you might be in the clear if you're not pasting content that has a strict copyright statement in it

    This "ANSWER" is the legal & intellectual property of "USER" and it may not be copied/reproduced without his knowledge and agreement. blablablab

    I think, that just to be safe, instead of copy/pasting the questions & answers from Y!Answers, a better idea would be to post the question as-is and only post a small excerpt of the answer with a link to the original answer from Y! and also add your own answer to the question.

    something like:

    Q:"I have a 12 inch penis! Is that natural ?"
    A from Y!: "No, you are a freak of.... <click here to read the original answer>"
    your answer: "blablabla bullcrappity-crap"

    If you put the sentence "Powered by Yahoo Answers" ( with a link to yahoo answers) in the footer, it should be legal. Not sure how much fruitful though. You will get penalized for copying.
