    Copyright issue

    Hey all,

    I know this thing has been covered alot here but i still want to be sure.

    Suppose i take pieces of text out of The lonely planet ( west africa - nigeria ) to be precise and i put that text online adding a copyright Lonely planet to the text.

    Would it be oke ?? Or should i get in contact with them??
    Or should i just alter the text small so they can not say i just copied it right out of the book?

    Thanks in advance,

    Ganglylamb.

    There shouldn't be a problem if its published text. Just follow the basic quoting rules. You know put it in "" use [] to indicated changes you made in the quote and cite where the quote came from, the author of the quote, when it was published, etc

    if you're still not sure, run a google on MLA and APA (those are the 2 most popular formats for research papers, and will have instructions on how to site sources).
    PHP and XML
    Let's talk about SAX
