Question Coupons and screenshots

Hi,

I have a website where I want to give users the opportunity to share coupon codes, similar to retailmenot. Am I allowed to publish coupons without the authorization from the creator (the store/webservice) of the coupon? And are couponsites like retailmenot allowed to publish screenshots from online stores without their permission?

You're entering a very crowded field, but no, you don't need permission, it is all covered under fair use.

Yes, I know it's a crowded field, but I'll give it a try But as I'm living in Europe, does the "fair use" rule apply to me, or is it the law in my country that counts, even if the screenshot is of a store that is located in the US?

For international issues, it depends, on treaties and whatnot. Generally most countries have similar laws though on this. I would double check EU laws though.

Check EU laws is good for you. I think you should get more information from your country about this.
