If I get content from Wikipedia which is a free encyclopedia and use it as is, will it count as...
Yes, it will be considered as duplicate content. Even when you republish your own content, which was already published elsewhere, it will be considered duplicate content.
If you copy it direct it will. I've always found, for the Internet and print, it is best to take notes on your subject from at least 3 sources and then write up from your notes, that way you avoid any plagiarism.
use footnotes when doing research. wise to state where you've got it from. it's totally different if you don't mention the source then that's a different story. that's when you call it plagiarism.
I have found Wikipedia good for inspiration and a direction to take an when writing an article. It is not, however, good as a completely factual research tool. Even my 6th grader is not allowed to use it as a source for her papers.

I had just edited it tonight because it's a good...
