Very interesting Edge. Thanks for sharing, I wouldn't have seen it otherwise :)

This seems to be URL hijacking, only with an RSS url. But then, any URL is an URL, so why not...

In the iTunes case, it seems you can pay to get your URL listed for your competitors' product. IANAL, but that does not seem like a strong legal case to me, even if profitable ;)
