Understanding CopyrightCopyright and the Internet - What's Not Okay?

When creating a Web page, you CANNOT:

  • Put the contents of another Web site on your Web site
  • Copy and paste information together from various Internet sources, although you CAN quote or paraphrase limited amounts
  • Copy and paste others' lists of resources on your own Web page, without permission
  • Copy and paste logos, icons, photographs and other graphics from other Web sites to your Web page (unless it is clearly advertised as "free," "copyright-friendly," or in the "public domain")
