As i understand this is an article you are using on your website?
I believe (and I might be very well wrong as copright laws go) as long as
you put who/where the source orginated from a website (if applicable) you
should be ok.

While it would be a clear violation of the magazine's copyright for her to
post the article without permission, I don't think that you personally have
much to worry about.

Would it be a clear violation?

Are the bounds between violation and fair use clearly defined by a crisp,
thin, bright line?

Or is it perhaps a fuzzy, wide, gray line?

Could such use, properly executed, reasonably claim to fall within fair use?
