I want to have my own to give out to visitors, that ideally links back to my site, and that I can update whenever I choose. Does anyone know of a good script for this?

Couldn't you just use RSS [xml.com]?

Where are you getting the content from? Create an RSS feed using that data.

I'd rather not use RSS since the people that will want to use the ticker on their sites won't be savvy enough for that. I need the ticker to be simple copy and paste for those that choose to use it. Any other ideas?

Give them simple IFRAME code linking to a small page on your site.
