Hi peeps,

I have just purchased some material to use on a website.

Reading the legalese in the EULA, they refer to "WEBPAGE", and "WEBSITE". The content is pictures and I am going to use them on a site.

To my way of thinking, a WEBPAGE is part of a WEBSITE. So if you are limited to using 10 images from a set of 30 per webpage, you can use all 30 but you would need to have 3 pages of 10.

Now, my question is; What is the legal difference between a website and a webpage?

I checked Websters Unabridged Dictionary, no luck. I am in the USA, so any replies need to apply to the USA.

It would be handy to have a link in any answer to an authorative page.

"A website, or Web site, is not the same thing as a Web page. Though the two terms are often used interchangeably, they should not be. So what's the difference? To put it simply, a Web site is a collection of Web pages. For example, Amazon.com is a Web site, but there are millions of Web pages that make up the site."

Definition from - http://www.techterms.org/definition/website

Here's another fair site for terminology and definitions.

http://www.webopedia.com/

Often I can just type in the term I'm searching for in Google, sometimes I even add "definition" to the string which helps filter some of the number of responses one will receive back.

As far as finding a "legal" difference/definition between web site and web page, not even the 'LECTRIC LAW LIBRARY lists such.
(Probably, for a fee, they'll gin one up for you.)

Good luck with your new site.

Hello KoanYorel,

Thank you for your reply.

I will have to investigate this some more.

Thanks,
