It is important to remember that intellectual property is just that - property. Taking someone's ideas is theft, just like taking their car or their lunch money.
Some creators grant limited permission for their work to be reused (such as Creative Commons). Online collaboration is encouraged but it is plagiarism to take info from a web site and claim it as your own - particularly in a research project. Get permission, give credit, and act ethically in your research.
One day someone may give you the credit you're due, too.
