Ok, I am making an ebook. In this book, i am quoting users' posts from forums. My criteria is it has to be about a particular subject, it doesnt matter if it is pro or con.
Every quote will have a link (ebook) to that forum (thread and even exact page if possible) so lots of credit/promotion for the forum owners.
The ebook is my original idea
None of the content im copying would have to do with the site its on (im staying away from Xforum for subjects:X, rather going to generic/general forums)
The ebook will be free of charge, come in installments based on continued subscription to an opt in email list.
I am prepared to remove quotes if asked by forum owner OR poster
None of the forums are private and none of the info i put in the ebook is private.
My questions are basically: Can I do something outside of contacting every single forum and asking permission or would including a bit saying how ill omit and remove links ? It would take years knowing these forums.
What is the most i could do on my end to keep out of trouble?(remember, for every single quote I am including a link back to the respective site right above the quote, its pretty much just www.thispage.com and a short quote from a user from the )
