    I am working on an educational website and the owners wanted an article section where I put articles they indicate on the site. The articles come from news/magazine and other online article/new sources. I have been listing ?Article Taken From: (URL)? and a link to the original article. I thought that was enough, but I have heard from a friend that it isn?t. . This site is NOT yet publicly online, so I can change things to be legal before it becomes a legal problem.. . What do I need as a citation to make sure I don?t infringe on anyone?s copyright?. Do I need to do anything else other than listing a citation & link to be legal?. . Thank You all for helping!.

      Thanks for visiting my website. As far as the law is concerned, I don’t have a definitive answer. What I do is place a hyperlink back to the original source when I use something from another site. I usually title the link with the site’s name. I pay particular attention to that connection when I’m using a direct quote from another site. If it is a lengthy quote I set in in a block quote format. If it is information common to multiple sites and not a direct quote, I don’t think there is any copyright infringement. I wish you luck in your project.
