Here is what GoogleGuy says about spinning... (old post though)
Matt Cutts.. often finds that honest webmasters worry about dupe content when they donít need to. G tries to always return the "best" version of a page. Some people are less conscious... A lot of people ask about articles split into parts and then printable versions.
Do not worry about G penalizing for this.
Different top level domains: if you own a.com and a.fr, for example, donít worry about dupe content in this case.
General rule of thumb: think of SEís as a sort of a hyperactive 4 year old kid that is smart in some ways and not so in others: use KISS rule and keep it simple.
While itís helpful to try to pick one of those articles and exclude the other version from indexing, typically a whitehat site doesnít neet to worry about 1-3 versions of an article on their own site. However, I would be mindful that taking all your articles and submitting them for syndication all over the place can make it more difficult to determine how much the site wrote its own content vs. just used syndicated content.
In other words: Go ahead and spin. With a limit of course. Be cautious of course. Use the spun content to link to the main source.
