    Do you have to get permission from a third party every time, or can you just cite the source?

    When writing a hub, can you use information such as a fact or statistic from a third party and just give that third party credit as opposed to getting permission?  For example, if I'm writing about resumes and I read something about this that I include in my Hub, but say this information is from so and so at a certain website is that okay??

    usually you can just quote and cite as long as you don't claim it as your own work it is no problem. Except with common knowledge and a couple other exceptions you don't need to quote or cite this sort of thing. you can always paraphrase too, but if you do cite the source to be on the safe side. Good luck. I think the only time you need third party permission is if you are making some loot on the deal, dont quote me on that but cite and quote you should be fine.
