    If my e-book application use many content of books and websites without any citation , is that legal ? Should i cite them ? How do i cite them in my app ?
    I saw many e-book apps on android market don't have citation, despite of them using many copyrighted content.
    I need your opinion about this issue.
    Thanks in advance.

    Where are you located? Each country has different ways of dealing with copyright. Some have a fair use doctrine, others don't. There's a lot more besides.

    There is a fuzzy line here... If you are making an e-book reader, you can usually get away with things, because you aren't actually providing copyrited content. The people who produce the ebooks are the ones who need to worry about that.
