What do you mean by news site? Like a local news site or like a country news or general news? If it's like a local news site, I would just local stories from newspapers and sources and put it on your site with the permission to do so. Or you can go out and find the news for yourself.

Hey, that's a really good idea, Dan. I like that. Research your news -local and international, and then collate the stories and topics into your own words. Add feature articles and if you're into graphics, create your own bi lines etc. If you re-write the article yourself in an essay form, you wont require permission, though footnoting your sources is a really strong idea.

Good luck, mich6

Hi Mich6,

I think a really great way to create a news site is to utilize the Blog/RSS Widget that Synthasite just released a few weeks ago. This is the perfect way to get information out there in a really organized fashion. This also gives your site visitors the opportunity to sign up to get your news updates immediately upon your posting them.

Also, just the other day the company I work for was looking to republish articles within our company blog relating to E-Commerce, so we started e-mailing some publishers about re-print rights. This is what one of them had to say; We could use the title of their article and up to 25 words with a link that then went to the full story on their site, or we could summarize the article in our own words, and in as many words as we wanted, and then place a link to the full article on their site.

Hope this helps a little, good luck with your site!
