Will Downloading And Ranking Client Videos Make Duplicate Content?

This question came to us from Hump Day Hangout Episode 30:

In one of your videos on getting new clients you mentioned that you could search for companies with videos already on YouTube, download & rank them on your own channels.

Couldn’t this trigger some duplicated content bells for Google?

I tried this with a couple of videos and none of them (they are just down-&uploaded, so no changes made, 100% like the original) is ranking, but they are indexed and show up with other exact-match keywords.
