I use Yahoo! RSS news feeds for my sites (recently switched from Google News since I considered they were allowing too many low quality news providers, like simple bloggers, where I wouldn't want to send my traffic to) and I noticed that some of the news links go to pages where registration, or worse, paying subscription, is required to read the article. Well, that's a waste of link.

Do you any of you know a way to identify these specific yahoo links so I can discard them? At least Google News would add (subscription) in the title which made it easy not to display them with a little regex. I use MagPie RSS but I kow my way around PHP. Thanks for any feedback.

Using Yahoo or Google on websites violates their TOS..

More news sites are pulling access without registration specifically because people are using content without permission.

Try accessing a legal news servicelike AP, AHN, Reuters, Yellowbrix.
