    Sample Chapters Reprint

    Hello All,

    I tried to find the answer in the search engines, could not find one... Sorry if it's already answered.

    I would like to know reprinting sample chapters from books is legal.... I will have a link to the site where the user can purchase the book with the price and reviews...

    for examples, oreilly site sample chapters section

    this links has a sample chapter ,, is it OK to keep the all the details from the site like book screenshot and a link to the orially site, sample chapter reprinted in my site instead of sending the user to that site...

    Generally I would say no, you cannot rip a webpage and re-publish it even with attribution. If you are an affiliate you can usually take promotional blurbs and re-copy them but I don't think that would apply to sample chapters. The book is owned by the author, he may have given the publisher certain reprint/sample rights but gave none to you. If you are an affiliate then why not ask them.

    While digging around the O'Reilly site I cam upon this job opportunity.
