    I have a social network website and I was wondering what are the legal consequences of mentioning big publications like cnn.com, huffingtonpost.com, thenewyorktimes.com, elle.com on my homepage (Something like "As seen on: CNN, THENEWYORKTIMES etc"? Can I get into trouble by doing this? What is your experience with this?

    Your site will probably never be seen by any of the staff at any of the publications.

    Probably, but there's a big "if" here.

    Why are you so worried? It's the smallest thing. Just remove it if you're losing sleep over it. They're media companies, they can put you in jail for 10 years if they want to.

    Probably a simple c&d or takedown notice. If you then don't comply then expect lawyers to contact you
