scraping is one thing, but what are we supposed to do about rss feeds?
as far as google is concerned there cant be much of a difference between a scraper taking your stuff and someone reproducing your feed. and there's only so much information that you can take away from it before it becomes useless.
and even if you've only got a two sentence excerpt in it, you could still end up with it duplicated 100 times over the web within an hour of publishing it.
people fire off DMCAs at the first sight of a scraper, but dont give much thought to feeds. are we better off without feeds? its difficult to know after panda.
