It depends. Here's what you can do freely with Web content:
- You can link to the homepage of a site without permission by posting the link or by word-linking.
- You can forward or “share” an article using one of the share symbols or links provided by the service that hosts the content – options often include social networks like Facebook and Twitter, and sometimes, an email function. (Note: You cannot share the resource in any way other than that provided by the service.)
If you want to "deep-link" to something (i.e., link to a page that is not the home page of a site), you must consider permissions.
- Check the CCC Annual License to see if the site is covered; if so, follow the guidelines given by the CCC as set forth under the Academic License.
