What are the terms of use?

The feeds are provided free of charge for use by individuals and non-profit organisations for personal, non-commercial uses. We ask that you provide attribution to Yahoo! New Zealand Entertainment in connection with your use of the feeds.

If you provide this attribution in text, please use: "Yahoo! New Zealand Entertainment". If you provide this attribution with a graphic, please use the Yahoo! New Zealand logo that we have included in the feed itself.

We reserve all rights in and to the Yahoo! New Zealand logo, and your right to use the Yahoo! New Zealand logo is limited to providing attribution in connection with these RSS feeds.

We are also including the provider of each individual news story in the feed alongside each headline. Please do not alter this for display. We want our news partners to be attributed for their work.

Yahoo! New Zealand also reserves the right to require you to cease distributing these feeds at any time for any reason.

How can I use RSS?

Typical applications for consuming or using RSS include:

* Using a program known as a News Aggregator to collect, update and display RSS feeds

* Incorporating RSS feeds into weblogs

News Aggregators (also called news readers) will download and display RSS feeds for you. A number of free and commercial News Aggregators are available for download. Popular news readers include AmphetaDesk, NetNewsWire, and Radio Userland.

Many aggregators are separate, "stand-alone" programs such as those listed above; other services will let you add RSS feeds to a Web page.

Another way many people use RSS feeds is by incorporating content into weblogs, or "blogs". Blogs are web pages comprised of usually short, frequently updated items and web links. Blogging as a publishing tool is used for many purposes: traditional journalism, personal journals, group discussions around a topic, and many combinations in-between.
