I want to setup a site about my fav band using Socrates with content that's primarily coming from youth and music magazin articles back from the mid-80's.
Besides my own material, I have received also a big part of these articles from other collectors that scanned them and converted them into pdf format, but they do not seem to really want to do anything else with it.
I'd like to know whether it would be unethical if I post these articles in re-written format next to the original pdf / picture and embed Google-Adsense as well ? I'm just worried that other fans (who are supposed to be my regular visitors) or even some of the band members will complain and/or feel ripped off.
Appreciated your thoughts on this.
