RSS Feeds in applications

During the recent ACT! Web 2.0 presentation at Insights I was asked about guidance for terms of use regarding consuming RSS feeds in ACT!


With Google News there are 4 terms which you must abide by to consume a Google News RSS or ATOM feed:

1.  attribute the feeds to Google News.

2.  attribute each news item to its provider, using the provider name as it appears in the Google News feed.

3.  include a link to the Google News cluster of related articles for each news item, using the link provided in the Google News feed.

4.  identify the search terms used to generate the feed.


As you can see from the attachment the scrolling news feed reader demoed inside of ACT! at Insights meet these terms. 


I'll package up this RSS Reader code and post to devnet as a download later this week.
