Will there be any copyright issues if I copy an article then create a PDF and embed it in my website?

It depends. Are you displaying the PDF itself, or are you simply linking back to the original? Did the copyright owner give permission for others to share/display the document? Did you get permission? If you’re displaying without permission, then it is copyright infringement. Fair use may be at play, but you should not rely on that. If the copyright owner has stated (to you or in license language on the site) that the PDF is free to display, then you have permission to display, and it is not infringing. If you’re simply linking back to the original via the URL without displaying the PDF, then there is no infringement. This answer is for informational and educational purposes only. This should not be taken as a substitute for legal advice. This does not create an attorney-client relationship with anyone who reads it.
