I believe google is clever enough on detecting what is "intentionally"
duplicated and what is
actual content, but I would not throw my dice on it anyway.

The following excrept is from google's duplicate content definition [1]:

Examples of non-malicious duplicate content could include:

   - Discussion forums that can generate both regular and stripped-down
   pages targeted at mobile devices
   - Store items shown or linked via multiple distinct URLs
   - Printer-only versions of web pages
