    I didn't really know what section to put this in. I own a website and I wanted to take content from a book. If I copy certain pages word for word and just properly site the source at the end, is that considered copyright infringement?

    I think as long as you properly cite then you're good... There might be a certain allowed length though. Not 100% sure

    I may just summarize it into my own words then and just put the source at the end.

    You're best off doing the summary. It gets very complicated when you go into copyright law, and your initial post isn't specific enough to say whether you'd be in line with the law or not. Summarize and you'll be fine for sure, though.

    Yep, that's the same way I did it on a very good "clock book".

    Took some time, but it was worth. Very good unqiue content, with rich of keyword density, and long-term-keywords.
