I think scoble may be missing the point with the latest blog news. Martin Schwimmer licenses his blog (as do I) under a creative commons license which prohibits commercial use. He has decided that bloglines.com is making commercial use of his content and so he asked them to stop using his feed. This is perfectly in keeping with the creative commons license he has chosen, and does not stop people subscribing to his content in aggregators that republish his feed as part of a commercial exercise. To my mind this is no different than taking a web page you have written and wrapping it in a frameset that displays adverts (something dotnet247.com does, much to my disgust). Martin has published a response to the screaming hordes of critics but I can see it getting lost in all the noise and grinding of teeth going on by those who believe that simply because an RSS feed is there you can do whatever you want with it.
