I'd like to use Google News (or Yahoo News) on a small local radio station's home page. They do not have PPC or any banner ads on their site. They do not make money through their site. They essentially want to offer a service to the people coming to their site.
Is that a commercial or non commercial use of an RSS feed? I can't find anything that clearly describes "non-commercial".
Google News TOS says:
2. Use of the Service. You may only display the content of the Service for your own personal use (i.e., non-commercial use) and may not otherwise copy, reproduce, alter, modify, create derivative works, or publicly display any content. For example, you may not use the Service to sell a product or service; use the Service to increase traffic to your Web site for commercial reasons, such as advertising sales; take the results from the Service and reformat and display them, or use any robot, spider, other device or manual process to monitor or copy any content from the Service. If you are uncertain whether your intended use of the Service is permissible, please contact us. In addition, Google shall have the right in its sole discretion to suspend or terminate the Service or your access to it.
Any ideas? Will G actually respond if you ask them a question about it? Thanks for any feedback.
