    Just a quick one.. I know at least 1 of our regular members runs a community site..

    Am I allowed to include information on a specific company/business, or will I need to contact them first?

    I have found information on the web that is okay for me to use, but do I need permission from the owner?

    (The information we are talking about is opening times, address, and so on).

    As long as you are not violating copyright (using their work without permission) I think you will be fine.

    Assuming this is a public business that advertises their services on the net.

    By posting publicly available information as you mentioned,you are effectively advertising for them!
    You should be paid for spreading such information, not worry about repercussions!

    Well I tried to email the owner from the email given but it bounced back..

    The footer's copyright says 2002..

    I will include a link to that page and use the information.

    Thanks guys
