Hello I have a question Copying content (articles,images) from other site legally allowed? I want to copy content from other news site and put it on my site.i want to make my site very much informative. What kind of penalties will be put on my site except ranking penalties. It could be possible to penalize on my site in big amount of money? Do i get some sort of notice to remove the content before actually filing the case in court against me. I have given contact email address at my sites contact us page. Can i be sued directly in court without getting any warning\notice? I see there are hundreds of sites who steal content from buzzfeed.com like sites.
