How do you get permission?
It's important to get permission before you use any information from another web site. For example, if you're doing a website on skateboards and copy and paste Tony Hawk's autobiography from a website, you have to contact the autor of that website and as to use that information.
The big question is, "What do say to author of the website?" or to put it another way, "How do I ask permission?"
One very easy way to contact someone to ask permision is this website:
Once you have asked for permission and received it, how will it look on your website? You can create a bibliography page and link it to your site or you can put your citation (give credit) at the bottom of the page itself.
