It's definitely not recommended. I can say that I've had people copy my exact website, reupload it to their domain with their logo in place of mine, and actually rank for my articles before me. This was a few years back, hopefully something has changed.
What is your purpose for using the same content? Is it a unique situation? Please explain more if you have time.
Do you know what syndication is? Have you ever seen Google penalize a website that posts syndicated content? Lot's of news sites do this. Have you ever seen one penalized?
They may give weight to the original website that posted it first. But they don't penalize a site for posting something that was syndicated. If they did, all the syndicated news sites would not show in search listings.
Now I have seen Google penalize a page when the same article is posted on the SAME website multiple times. Duplicate content concerns the same content on multiple pages of the same website.
