#content curation is not duplicating content as long as it is focused on content creation and not automation.
It’s important to realize that if you look at content on the web, something like 25 or 30 percent of all of the web’s content is duplicate content. … People will quote a paragraph of a blog and then link to the blog, that sort of thing. So it’s not the case that every single time there’s duplicate content it’s spam, and if we made that assumption the changes that happened as a result would end up probably hurting our search #quality rather than helping our search quality. – Matt Cutts, Google
