Legality of RSS Feed Display on my site

Let's say I would like to display technology news on my blog using RSS feed of ZDnet from [news.zdnet.com...]

Are there any legal implications of capturing this or cnn / bbc rss feeds to display automatically on my own website/blog?

Prominentum, welcome to WebmasterWorld.

Generally these sites have very clear TOS regarding the use of their feeds. I am not familiar with zdnet's rules, but when in doubt, the best thing to do is ask them as they can easily trace the source of their feeds.

welcome to WebmasterWorld [webmasterworld.com], Prominentum!

in the case of zdnet [cnetnetworks.com] it seems pretty clear you can't do this without a licensing agreement or at least permission.
i'm sure in most cases these are intended for personal usage.
you should check the TOS for any site or service before reusing content.
