    I've looked online and there doesn't seem to be one reliable answer and a big conflict in opinions. When I was at uni, whenever we used a diagram or piece of text from a website or book we would reference it, stating where the information came from. Wouldn't this be the same for a blog, in order to avoid legal issues?

    Typically yes, when you're presenting data from another source, you have to always quote or give credit where it's due. This applies to any intellectual property such as text or media. That's also some of the reasons why some people put watermarks on their media, to protect their content that they've worked so hard on.

    I generally link back to the original owner of the content and mention them somewhere in the post.

    Definitely yes, you may not deem it fit at present if your blog is only small but you never know where it could end up so starting in the correct way will save you any potential headaches in the future.
