I'm just doing my first "test" Amazon site and I guess my first IM site in general and I'm wondering about reusing the content that Amazon has. My site is basically selling a book (not much to be made but I'm using it as a basis to learn stuff).
Anyway, my question. How much of the content can I take directly, not reworded, from the Amazon about the author and about the book pages? For my information page I more or less ripped it straight and added a few headings here and there. Small changes in text to make it more readable. For the money page I've ripped lots of user reviews, critic reviews plus the bio about the book.
Will it negatively affect the site the fact that none of the content could be deemed original? Should I go back and reword parts (maybe the book bio and the author bio (information page))? Is it valid to leave the reviews in there word for word?
Is this a no no and should I really just write my own original content based upon the Amazon pages?
