    Default Copyright of Website Terms of Use Language

    Hello, I am currently in the process of launching an online news sharing site and need to have a Terms of Use. I found a website which offers similar services as my website will and have read their Terms of Use agreement. My question is the following: May I copy their Terms of Use and change it slightly so that it is not completely the same, and so it will match the services I will be offering?

    Thank you in advance!

    You can certainly use another site's terms of use as a guide when writing your own.

    These are generally pretty standardized, anyway.

    Thank you for your quick reply! So, I may use their terms of use, but not copy it word for word and only change the parts that don't apply to my site?
