Chapter 1. Introduction > Legal Implications

1.4. Legal Implications

The copyright implications for RSS feeds are quite simple. There are two choices for feed publishers, and these reflect on the user.

First, the publisher can decide that the feed must be licensed in some way. In this case, only authorized users can use the feed. It is good manners on the part of the publisher to make it as obvious as possible that this is the case — by providing a copyright notice in an XML comment, at least, and preferably by making it difficult for unauthorized users to get to the feed. Registering a pay-only feed with all the aggregators is asking for trouble.
