    I know that but why some websites copy news from Associated Press and just add
    ''The Associated Press'' at the end of the content??

    isn't that illegal?

    You can write your own content and link to an AP or Reuters story. That's what the web is all about.

    They do that because they are paid subscribers of these news agencies. It is 100% illegal, and you might get a notice from them.

    I think you may have to have expressed written ( not implied oral ) consent.

    In most cases you can do this but you must cite the source and the entire article must remain unedited.

    I see news sites do this all of the time. For example: CNN might post a news article from the Washington
    post with a link pointing back to the original source.

    As long as you do it in this fashion you should be okay.

    If you have membership then only you can copy the site content otherwise you need to create your own content.

    Choose 100 sites, post 5 articles from any of these 100 daily - just change the title a bit and you are ok till your site dont make it big enough - which it won't but still attract enough traffic if you you will use strong tag wisely in your posts.
