I am not talking about content scrapping sofwares who steal content from your site/blog without your permission. I am talking about mashup site which uses content from good, big sites with huge content using their API and organizes the content on its site in such a way that user gets all the needed relevant info in one page.

1.How does google treat these site? Are they treated using duplicate content?
2.Are they treated like affiliate site which do not have anything to offer of their own?
3. What is going to be google's attitude towards this kind of sites when they sort out their caffeine?

Right now (since Mayday at least) Google seems to be bowing down and kissing their feet - and blowing off the original author's too. We've got a discussion about this in the Supporter Area's "Open Google Forum"

Mayday gave a big boost to mash-up sites - what can we learn? [webmasterworld.com] (-subscription required)

Thanks Tedster,
I had the same feeling. I found a site doing extremely well with a good mashup. They pull data from 6-7 sites and organize it in such a way that it is really useful to the visitor.
