Usually people either use article submissions to get backlinks to their money sites or to promote products they're selling.
If you are using articles for backlinking purposes then you'll be fine because the dup content is on other peoples sites not yours.
The important part of the process is that you have backlinks from other sites already spidered by google. The more the better.
Now if you use it to market affiliate products then I don't think there's a problem there either.
So to summarize...Send out your articles to get backlinks or to get exposure to your affiliate product, but make sure your own site is original and check that it is by using copyscape.com, that way google will be happy. Once your pages are indexed by google will know the originator of the content.
Sure you can add your own links, banners, ads etc, but make sure the majority of your site has original content.
