Paul has come up with a cool way to put off those wanting to rip off your content by republishing your full RSS feed – he’s found a way for WordPress bloggers to insert a copyright notice into the feed so that it appears on any site using your content.
‘Anyway, for other bloggers using WordPress who want to throw a scare into the scrapemasters who swipe their stuff and use it as spam, I took the liberty of modifying the wp-rss2.php file so it includes a visible copyright notice in every post in the feed.
First thing your (RSS) readers will see is your excerpt from your post followed by a horisontal line and this underneath:
“© 2005 YOUR-BLOG-URL.com This RSS Feed is for personal non-commercial use only. If you’re not reading this material in your news aggregator, the site you’re looking at is guilty of copyright infringement. Please contact YOUR-CONTACT-DETAILS so we can take legal action immediately.”’
