People who use commercial services, such as Google Reader, Bloglines, and others, are more than welcome to syndicate the feed, and read the content. In every case, the content is read privately, as such, that it is not possible to make and income from the content that I publish.

What is not acceptable is for someone to republish my content to a public site, and use that content to gain income from advertising on the site. It goes directly against the copyright chosen. I am not making money from this content, and I expect those who are reading, to not make money off my content either.

So, for my sake, stop trying to fix something that isn't broke, and understand I am going to publish my content, and not place it in the public domain, but expect the copyright to be adhered. The copyright is highly visible, and spelled out in plain terms. If this is too constrictive of a copyright for you, then don't bother reading my blog.

By: Michael Wheatland Tue, 12 Jun 2007 10:26:17 +0000 As somebody who does run a not for profit site that aggregates some content from other, sometimes commercial, sources for the benefit of the sites readership, I find it hard to believe that some people who do publish their blogs via RSS, a format that is designed to be re-displayed in a feed-reader (Whether it be on another website or not) complain about the use of it.

RSS and ATOM are formats that are more or less unreadable to the public, and hence is designed to be re-distributed via another medium. If you are so worried about loss of income from less ad clicks on your blog, then you better start issuing DMCA takedown notices to Google (Reader), Bloglines, and all of the other online feed readers that do not display your ads, or for that matter the copyright notice on your page.

So for my sake, if you are going to publish content via RSS, stop complaining, or place a copyright notice, along with a list of programs or online readers that you think should be allowed to aggregate your deliberately aggregatable content.

(Perhaps there are parts of it you support and parts you do not.)
