    google definitely penalises duplicate contents by ranking them less in search engine results, copyscape can help verify article authenticity , specially when procured form third party,
    i have seen that original articles are indexed faster and rank higher

    While you may not be docked by Google for duplicate content, it's still not a good idea. You may get in trouble by the article writer. I know I've found some of my content duplicated on another blog and I hassled the guy until he removed it. The article was one of the rock solid mainstays of my site and it was worth the trouble.

    While it may not hurt in the SERPs, it doesn't make it any more "right."

    Duplicate content is a problem, why would you want your content being filtered down the search results?

    You will usually find websites with duplicate content indexed by the search engines, but Google tries to rank the original source highest, simply rewriting the content should give you a higher return in terms of traffic and more chance of picking up those all important backlinks.

    Well, if you can SEO your site better than the site that has the original content, you'll find yourself higher. It's all about the off-page SEO and not too much about the content, although there are a few things I do with the content which seem to work well for me.

    So you are saying that instead of copying the content for your site, you should rewrite it so you site wouldn't be filtered down?
    And may I know what are the keywords you are talking about? Sorry, I'm new to SEO so my knowledge about it isn't enough.
