BLOG: Stealing Blog Content? 

Scoble took down his experimental aggregator blog after several complaints about it being stealing. It's a shame that Scoble felt pressured into taking down his aggregator. Although it aggregated copies of whole blog entries, it did attribute the original author. The one point might be that the attribution was a little subtle, and it could have made it clearer that these came from other blogs. But, I didn't think it was a big deal. As a reader of his aggregator blog, I was clear on which content came from where...

Hopefully, Scoble will come back with an aggregator blog that just uses excerpts of the posts, because I found it kind of useful.

Just to be clear. Anyone who wants to can copy content from my blog -- either piecemeal or wholesale. That's what it's here for. But, a link back to my original blog post would be greatly appreciated.
