Just because a recipe in a cookbook is published for the use of others, doesn't mean you are giving anyone permission to take the recipe and republish it as their own. The author has made the distinction perfectly clear and it's black and white, there is nothing to question. The purpose of RSS feeds is to make it more simpler for your readers to read content from YOUR site, not steal it and put your name on it. Most people know better, and so do you (and scrapers). Also, scrapers don't typically steal the summary feeds, but feeds with the entire article. There's little point otherwise. Yes, you can ask them to remove it, but 9 times out of 10 they will simply ignore you. I've had this happen with a client of mine, and when frequent requests fell on deaf ears, I eventually banned the IP.

Hi, I feel so helpless, I write quality content and some people would just pull the feed from my site and profit! I can't take down RSS, since it's the only way I can submit a sitemap to google (I'm hosted in blogger blogspot). Admin of this site, I'd like to ask for help! Please mail me back if you have time!

You are right, there is distinction. But if you offer RSS, too many people will think it is free for distribution. So, don't blame people for "stealing" your content, because it is not a "content" but rather summary of content in the RSS. And if you don't wish them using RSS on their websites, tell them, make a legal terms of use, incorporate it into RSS or put them on a website. Very small number of companies rejects usage of their RSS on websites. You are somewhere there, in the minority. Make a legal agreement with those people. Blocking them or using smart network ideas, or firewalls, is too silly.

There's a distinction between using the content for reading somewhere else (like Google Reader) and republishing it as your own. I syndicate for the former and not the latter.

Sorry, but this is bullshit. If you have RSS, which by definition today means Really Simple Syndication, you basically offer other people to "syndicate" the summary of your content. You should not put anyway full pages into the RSS, put only the summary of pages. With the RSS on other people's website you gain new visitors, you gain benefits, and you should not complaining when someone else is doing promotional work on your behalf. This is grossly your error on understanding the purposes of the RSS. The major purpose of the RSS is promotion of your content. So, don't make "smart" articles on how to stop RSS syndication, as in the first place you have offered RSS to other people, so don't complain, as that is bullshit.

If you have RSS, you are syndicating your content and what you have done shows your skills but also your hostility towards people syndicating your content. Scraping a web page is one thing, and I could understand it. But preventing people using RSS on other websites is simply a nonsense. RSS is for syndication, and if you don't want syndication, don't provide RSS.

Good stuff, I reason i came here is of course i was looking for a solution to a similar problem.Currently am just going with an ip block but i may eventually rename the feeds and re-submitt them,it's a pain but it's a radically reliable solution Thank you very much for the article

ha ha! that's genius. unfortunately, i don't know how to do any of that stuff, so i have to foil my scraper with lame methods. i just put a line in my posts linking back to my blog as the source of the material. and i set my feed to "short" when it used to be "ful". but i can't contact the douchebag, and i can't leave comments on the stolen posts :( on the bright side, i'm getting back links everyday :\
