Is RSS HOT or a Not?

Most probably many of you are using RSS feeds for your blogs or sites and have been happily
using it for sometime now? And so have
I with some of my blogs and sites, like Ecophagy
and MP3 Blog News and Downloads
And with a few new once like Hottest Music
and Celebrity-Stars

There has been a controversy lately started
by people who disagree with the use of software
that makes the use of RSS feeds so easy to use and
fill the blogs and web sites with quality content
while profiting from Google’s Adsense or Yahoo’s
Advertising Network. The same publishers do place
the feed option on their blogs or sites, and have no
problem while on occasion an article or two are used
by other bloggers.

There is a possibility that shortly many of such
bloggers will have special Copy Rights placed on
their RSS feeds making it illegal to keep using
their work on your blogs or sites. For reference
what I am talking about check please this blog

and this one

For me personally this issue is not an issue at all.
I would not mind if any of my posts are used by others
given of course that all my info and references will
be kept as on the sites these are taken from. What could
be a better exposure than this? And isn’t the Internet
meant to be an exchange place of info and links to begin

The following is from post #51,& Posted by: “new to rss
but not new to thinking” on one of the above links
to the web site with which I agree so

“Gee…. do we really want to create a brave new net where everything (every post, every search, every forum, every IM, every email, every webpage, every news snippet etc etc etc) comes with a EULA??? (Or worse comes with a warning that copyright infringment may be takling place unless such and such restriction have been met????? Think about it folks!

Free Software, Free Hardware, Free Music and yes… Free Knowledge”

Let see what will come out of all this. Let see
if our sites and blogs will become illegal or not,
and maybe we should start taking many of our RSS
feeds off. Or maybe start selling the sites that
are using RSS feeds and leave this to their next
owner. Or just simply burry our heads in the sand
and wait and see.

Talk to you soon folks and have a nice week ahead
