    Hi guys,

    a simple and probably dumb question to ask...but I really want to know the answers....if I'm scraping via RSS, will the wordpress blog or blogspot owner know?

    Is there anyway to prevent it?

    reason: I bought a software, and it had the ability to scrape via RSS, and auto post the content to my blog

    They'd be able to see the IP address of whatever system the scraping tool is running in their server logs. Other than that, you're probably good unless they proactively search for their own content on a search engine.
