    How do I copy, completely copy (credits, references,etc) an article from an online magazine. The site is Pyschology Today and there is no mention of acceptable usage of content on there web page. I am a little afraid to just write and ask them. Is there an accepted way to copy an entire article from an online journal.

    I would very much like the whole thing, but what is a work around if I cannot have my way. Can I write an introduction, copy most of it, and cite my source at the end. I really don't like that, these folks did the work, I would like them to get full credit. I get what I want just by having great content on my site.

    I could spin it if I bought a spinner, but that is just paraphrasing. Again, I am alright with that, but prefer these folks get credit where credit is due.

    What I want is to avoid scr*wing someone out of the credit if I can get the same benefit without scr*wing them. I don't know why this is bugging me. I use PLR all the time and I sometimes spin articles from article directories.

    Thank you for the assistance. Now I can give credit where it is due and maintain integrity with my reader by not stealing. I had no idea it was called attribution.

    Just try for a article, watch the result and then try for the whole.
    Be aware of Google panda.
