It's protected by copyright. The fair use doctrine applies to all copyright
matters.


>Is it legal to just borrow what I find on the Web?

If you mean republish without permission, the answer is no.


>And if you do find a site that is has the copyright sticker on it,
>what then applies?

The same law. Original work is fully protected with or without the "sticker"
but it's harder to collect damages.

You can always put a link at your site pointing to the material you like.
Doing this without permission, however, invites responses from mild
annoyance to outright retalliation. ...RM
