More on Feed2JS

I am considering using Feed2JS on our intranet (after listening to Meredith & Paul at Internet Librarian) – I’m still going to give it a whirl, but I’ll be more cautious before I use it on any of our sites outside of the firewall after reading this warning from RSS4Lib.

If you run your own copy of Feed2JS on your own server (rather than using Feed2JS’s public version), unscrupulous folks can borrow your script — and your bandwidth — to repurpose other RSS feeds from other sites without your knowledge or permission.

There is hope though.

Feed2JS.org offers directions for restricting Feed2JS to the feeds you want to be reused.
