    Hey I have about 6 auto blogs that I have completed, trying to get to 100 in three weeks.

    I am using various rss feeds from different sources
    ( some of them large websites) and I would like to know if any of these guys can take real action against me and my partner.

    Now I dont really care if they come after me, but all I am expecting is just at the most is a cease and desist.

    Also I want to promote this blog using twitter, reddit etc.... should I try to do this or keep these blogs under the radar and only rely on search engine traffic.


    Any ideas

    You should use a rewrite plug in full stop if your going to be posting ocntent which is already on google, unique content helps you SEO/pagerank/vistors/returning vistors a lot.

    Ok, so I guess I shouldn't be worrying about someone shutting my sites down lol then........
    Right now I am using a feed plug in and it seems to work fine.

    Well big sites are not going to sue you for money when it comes to content. Most of time its just a DMCA asking you to take down the content immediately.

    I agree, it's about stopping your violation mostly. A nice way around that is to create a blog that has the potential violation material (if you don't feel like rewriting), and point a few links from that site to your main page. This way your true blog is always safe.

    hmmm, well I dont think a DMCA warning is likely but I am paranoid.
    @usedagain, so build a an tuo blog that may have one or two feeds and use those links to point to a legit white hat blog ??

    COuldnt I just develop stand alone blogs in various niches and set and forget and if I get a DMCA warning, then so be it.....

    i'm wondering exactly the same thing :\ well i was thinking to build a PAGE in wp with my concerns about this copyright and if anyone has any issues about this to contact me at ...this@email...bla bla bla

    i'm pulling entire feeds from small blog owners so i'm a little paranoid to. big sites won't bother for sure and i think they even like leachers for BL.

    ad a small disclaimer in a sep part of our site saying all information is aggregated and an attempt is made to credit the original author.


    our society builds itself off plagiarism...
