    you mean 100% of their words?

    You might get a cease and desist order, or you might get sued if you're an american, can't say i know your legal system well so i won't give advices really..
    Sounds pretty bad in my head copy word for word from someone who has the legal resources to fuck you over, thats just my view thou :)

    Don't waste your time with stuff from CNN. AC doesn't pay for news stories or anything that will be irrelevant a month from now.

    it's for my blog only and it will have nothing to do with AC.

    just thought my thread will be appropriate for this section.

    I would still use their stuff. Just make a small link to the original content.I mean it's an autoblog...and if they'll cease and desist you then take the content down. Otherwise -FUUUCK "em
