    So I think I found a nice article. Now I want to rewrite this article for my site. I don't want to copy the article, I just want to rewrite that article keeping the meaning but changing the whole text so to make it original.

    But the owner in the copyright policy told to not copy nor rewrite the articles published in his website.

    Just paraphrase it/re-arrange the structure. The thesaurus is your friend.

    If the text is not a copy how can one tell is a rewrite ? If I write a article about google and write that I don't allow copy or overwrite how can you prevent "the internet" not to write about this ? Its the same with the music and the pictures.
    Even the composers from 14th century copied their themes till nowdays.

    If the article is rewritten, then they have no say in the matter really.

    Answered your own question did you not? A properly re-written piece of content is a unique piece of content.

    I don't think you'll have any troubles if you do so but rewritting is a bitchy move

    Rewrite yes, just make sure you are not copying whole sentence without editing them.

    Of course mate. Just change the words, use different synonyms and restructure the whole thing but keep the meaning exact and you will own that article.
    Don't be so naive in the IM world :)

    Rewrite it, keep the ideas and using your own words. I think nothing wrong with it, especially if you mention where you get ideas to write your article
