How many are using adsense with an RSS feed?

I see most RSS news feeds from major providers state that the service is not free to "commercial" websites. My question is a website that does not sell a product or service, but runs adsense considered a "commercial" site. Anyone have any input? How many out there are running adsense with RSS news feeds on their sites?

I think you should contact the RSS feed provider if you have any doubts, but my answer is "Yes" - using their content provided by their feed on a website where you will display your advertising alongside is using their content for commercial purposes and yours would be a commercial site.

Your site would be selling a service - advertising.

You should know that lots of people have already been down the road you're considering and a number of them have lost their AdSense accounts. For the rest, it's just a matter of time.
