    They're copyrighted, but, correct me if I'm wrong, quoting a few sentences as part of your own original article would be fine. Photos and video would have to be authorized for republishing.

    You can quote them as long as you link back to the original article. As well it's a good idea to cite where your source came from.

    Hey,

    From what I thought, I'm prity sure it's okay to have the video, articles on your own Website as long as you provide a link back to it. E.G source: nba.com in the bottom.

      With such a general statement your are absolutely WRONG!

      If the videos have an embed code offered - then, and ONLY then you may use them.

      Before spreading dangerously stupid advice on the net, go and look at the bottom of the site in question:
      Copyright © 2010 NBA Media Ventures, LLC. All rights reserved. No portion of NBA.com may be duplicated, redistributed or manipulated in any form.
      Which part of that sentence says it is OK to have it on your site?

      Please refrain from giving advice when you're only guessing at the answer. You'll spare yourself and those gullible enough to follow your advice a whole lot of trouble.

        Unless the owner explicitly gives up copyright or the material has gone in the public domain, everything in the US is subject to copyright. You don't need to register it anywhere, althought that's not a bad idea. Copyright begins as soon as it's down in a fixed form.

          This is true, I almost mentioned it, but there are qualifiers to that. I didn't mention it because I didn't want to take the time to go into the details. I'm sure you know this Justin, this is for those who don't ... the published material must be your original material to begin with in order to qualify for copyright protection. There are even exceptions to that. There are also some things that just don't qualify for copyright protection.

          Copyrights can be a very complicated matter. Asking for legal advice on a marketing forum isn't the best way to go about obtaining said legal advice. What you're getting is opinion. There may be some truth to the opinions you get, but it is opinion and not real legal advice just the same.

            Absolutely. As a rule of thumb, it's always best to assume that everything is copyrighted. If you really need to know, consult a lawyer.

            There's nothing complicated about this guys. If you use someone else's material, you provide a citation. You can use MLA or AP citations. I prefer AP. MLA is more academic work. Either way, if you quote or even paraphrase, you need to cite the work.

              Yes, absolutely, though you can still only quote an amount considered "fair use," a sentence, maybe a short paragraph out of a long article.
