: : : : If I copy and paste a copyrighted section of text from a subscription bases news website, copy the name of the website and the author and then use that text in a for-profit manner, is it legal?

: : I may need to clarify my situation better. I use 20 resources (newspaper websites, theme-based news websites, etc.; Some of the before mentioned are free and some are subscription based) to collect individual snippets, articles, reports, etc. and then e-mail those collected pieces of text to people who don't have the time to peruse all of those resources for the same theme oriented information. My service (currently is to 10 friends and family members and I don't charge $)has been greatly received so I thought I may try selling a subscription fee to anyone else who may be interested in receiving this collected info. I would always note where the text came from and who wrote it in every communication. Is this legal as long as I reference the source?

How much would it cost you to research this?
