    Hey guys, I have a quick question and would really appreciate your advice.

    I have launched a classifieds website (dedicated only to a special niche). In order to populate some content, I'm copying ads from Kijiji, rephrasing them a bit (using the same pictures tho), and posting it on my site. Is there any issue with this? Can I land into potential problems with Kijiji or the members postings Ads?

    This is not my permanent solution. It's only till I build up a decent traffic flow.

    I don't think you can, but you may get away with it.
    The posters actually benefits, so they are unlikely to complain, but Kijiji does, especially if the source isn't mentioned.
    So I believe it's illegal, but depending on Kijiji in particular, also on what country you're in and/or where you're hosted, you may not have issues, especially on a very temp basis.

    Good luck!

    Thank you for your response. What if I get permission from posters on Kijiji to duplicate ads on my site? If they authorize me to duplicate the ad on my site, am I still in the hot water?
