: I have a website on which I would like to post the news from other websites such as CNN.COM, ABCNEWS.GO.COM etc. How do I do this without getting into any copyright issues. Do I need to acknowledge that the news is from CNN.COM (I really dont want to) I also dont want to give a link to the news. Can I change the wordings of the news text and post it?
Dear S Thomas,
Just changing the wording can have risks. Using your own wording to phrase what it is, is usually safe against copyright infringment.
