Finding A List Of News Headlines
Posted 13 October 2006 - 07:49 AM
"feeds in the RSS format are provided free of charge for use by individuals for personal, non-commercial uses."
Does this mean that I can not download the RSS feed, parse the feed, and then republish the content in HTML as opposed to RSS? If so, it's a little perplexing that they can request this given that I could manually read the feed, and then link their headlines by hand on my site... ?
What about if I screen scrape a site? It's surely within my rights to read a web site and reference articles? If anything, I would have thought any news site would welcome links to their site?

Example: you may not take the RSS feed of the New York Times, turn around and sell me that feed.
