    You find some link pages or resource pages related to your niche, then run link analysis to find the outbound links, pick out the 404 pages, check them in Internet Archive: Wayback Machine to see what they were, if the pages just targeted at your niche, you create a similar page or prepare your own page at your website, then write an email to the webmaster of this link page or resource page and ask for replacing 404 links with your new page. That is the general idea of broken link, i learned from internet. Hope i made it clear.

    I would be more worried about the legality of this than Google's bot.

    Do not copy. Period.

    I agree with JoshZ here - the legality of what your are suggesting is highly questionable. All it's going to take is one webmaster whose link was replaced by a link to a different site with HIS content and you may get reported.
    A DMCA request sent to Google is only going to bring the site under further scrutiny. Bottom line, that's a VERY high level of risk for a handful of links into the site. I strongly recommend that you do NOT copy other peoples content or spin other people's content. There's nothing wrong per se with Broken Link Building, but do the webmaster a favor and write a BETTER piece of content than the original. He'll have even more reason to link to you.

    Hope that helps.
