    Is it ok to copy web content

    It is legal or right or legitimate to copy and use web content from another web site?

    it is totally illegal to do that, unless the author gives your permissions to do that.

    It's plagiarism, which is effectively theft.

    I think its ok if the author already gave his/her permission to the reader to republished their contents.

    I think there are also citation clauses where you can use excerpts of content as long as you explicitly mark them as such and reference the source.
