    I was just wondering if it would be possible to use Amazon Ads on websites such as a news syndication blog where the content is copied from the original source or on a recipe website where the recipes are syndicated from the web, provided all of them give a link back to the original source. How strict is Amazon's policy on this?

    Cheers!

    IMO there is a risk, since you are not generating the content yourself. It may be classified as "auto generated content" instead of "original content".

    Better ask amazon directly. you can have a chat session with their staff.
