Dupe content and PR Loss

affiliate content

I am looking to add an affiliate scheme to our site. I didn't want to add a link to every one of our pages as this would lose too much PR. Now before everybody starts with the don't worry about PR loss, if it's worth the link you should do it etc.. We do have many links where appropriate

They have given us the option of having the pages on our site so there is no loss.

However this worries me because I expect there are several sites that do a similar thing and therefore it is duplicate content. And on that note if certain pages are dupe content does this cause problems for the whole of the site?

Is the answer to ban G from this area? If I do this will I effectively be losing the PR anyway as I will have a link on every page to this area of the site?

I think no-one is answering because the situation and question is not very clear. There's several questions that are based on an example that is hard to understand.

I wouldn't worry too much about the duplicate content issue. For something to be dupe content, both file structure and page content have to be prety much the same. In my experience I've only seen this applied to dupe sites that are nearly identical in everyway.

What is the content to be hosted? Text? Pics? Links? Also, is there an exactly copy somewhere else on the web?
