I want facts not opinions. What are the rules when you are syndicating content on your blog? Obviously RSS exists for this very reason. I see blogs link to news sites all the time. Sometimes word for word. They do link back to the source and give credit to the author. Most definitely celebrity and gossip type sites do this. Most people like to put it their opinions on this issue, copyrights, etc. But I need the facts. What are the "facts"?
