Does displaying RSS feed means scraping?

Is it Ok to use RSS feed of other sites and publish on your website. More specifically you just publish titles and for article you send visitor to original site.

This depends on what the individual RSS provider says you're allowed to do with the feed. Many RSS feed providers do allow what you're asking, but with some additional conditions / restrictions.

web sites that publically broadcast RSS feeds can't tell you what to do or not to do with that content. if they don't want you to do something with their feed then they need to either take their feed down or protect it in some manner.

It's always woth asking the site in question. Some sites offern an rss feed for use on a pc rss reader. Not for re-distribution on another website.

I think the protection most people use is commonly known as copyright.

think about it:

are there any feeds that bloglines.com blocks subscriptions to? and if not, why aren't they getting sued up the butt?
