Hi, guys.
I just begin to build a forum. In my opinion, this forum is designed to discuss certain technical questions, and also collect useful tips or articles.

I want to amass some relarted articles from different communities, froums or blogs. After editing, if needed, add them to my froum.

Are there any problems on copy right or search engine?

Sure there can be a problem. Did you write those articles at the other sites? If not, then they're original works of the original authors, and the rights to them belongs to that author, or in some cases to the site owner, depending on their terms of service.

After editing, if needed

Without editing, it's scraping. With editing to make minor alterations it's what would be considered plagiarism.

There's a line drawn between plagiarism and research; replicating and using an article written by someone else with minor editing isn't research.

Sure, I also want these types of forum. even i am also doing SEO of my own developed siteswith. There can be a problem of finding the forums. I think you can better find the results through goggle. These you can got most of the forums as well as content writting techniues.

Harry08, you might try excerpting a brief quote from an interesting article and providing a link back to the original site. That can still be a good basis for discussion, and if you send some traffic to other blogs or forums they might reciprocate by dropping a link to your site.

You'll have problem if you don't inform the author or ask permission to them.
