Yahoo 360 is putting Copyright 2005 Yahoo on Personal Blog Entries

Update: Yahoo says the copyright notice in the RSS feed was a mistake and that it was never supposed to be there. It is to be fixed shortly.

It was brought to my attention today that Yahoo is copyrighting the RSS feeds for those that are setting up Yahoo 360 accounts. Some are already refusing to use the service because in a sense Yahoo now owns your content.

This may be a oversight on Yahoo’s part and I hope it is, I will probaly use their service anyway but probably not the blog portion and give them some time to answer these issues. [Yahoo 360 Copyrights Personal RSS Feeds]

  3. Jimw,
    I am very interested in the Yahoo 360! Service. What do you like about the service? Is there anything that you think Yahoo is doing that sets itself apart from the others?
    Thank you.

  4. I hope Yahoo comes clean on this. I sent you a invite but I guess your not going to use it. I was just trying to be nice. I feel pretty stupid now. Thanks Yahoo.
