Making our own news articles

Can I get some help with how to properly make News Articles pages without getting in trouble with copyright ?

We already do the RSS feed route where we display like 200 characters of each story before providing the external link to the site providing the news. But we'd REALLY like to have our own news source going.

How could we do this legally and legitimately ?

For example, if it's just regarding the entire text of an article...could we copy the entire text of that article and host it on our site...and just have their external link all the way at the bottom of our page?

Do some news companies allow other websites to syndicate and host their content? (meaning hosting the entire articles on our page..not just the RSS part)

I'd really appreciate getting some assistance with this.

Contact YellowBrix, All Headline News or FeedSydicate

You can't commercially use most RSS feeds... they are for personal use only.

Eventus, I believe those are URL's have to be hosted on their site though. (clicked to) I'd like the entire articles to be hosted on our site.

We don't sell anything on our site, free information site. (not commercial)
