Let's say that I have an application that involves entertainment, and I want to implement RSS feeds from some websites into it. Of course, the sources of these RSS feeds will be mentioned.
But, is it legal? Is implementing RSS feeds from a website into an application for commercial use legal?

Without terms it's difficult to say, but they might intend them for end-user use only and be upset about commercial redistribution. But I'd say you are just offering an alternative display. Like any RSS app...
