    I have a blog thats running WP-omatic with multiple feeds from feedburner. One of the blog writes who's feed I'm syndicating told me to remove his content. He has no disclosure except for a "copyright 2006-2008" at the bottom.

    I was under the impression that if you have an RSS link on your homepage, you were ok with syndicating it.

    How should I proceed?

    Well if you weren't stealing his content for your own, he wouldn't be mad.

    You are taking advantage of RSS and trying to make money off others content. Having a RSS feed on the side of your own blog is one thing, but having it be the entire blog is just duplicating his (and others) blog.

    I know that Google doesn't like duplicate content, but not sure if it counts content from feeds or not.

    Has he threatened legal action? Or just asked you to remove it?

    No, i'm none of the people who you mentioned.

    The writer said he was going to take "all of my personal assets".

    Also, I'm not making any money off his content, just adding it to this blog.

    Did you cite the source?

    If you cite the source and you aren't making any revenue off your use of the content...I don't know, doesn't seem like he has much of a claim.
