I would like to create a service that gathers contents from other news websites and display them in a way that may not necessarily be violating the source's terms.

The intent is to aggregate data that I cannot provide myself (lack of resources, knowledge, time) but at the same time I want to respect the source by only showing the opening paragraph (RSS style) and link back to the source.

I keep having a bad conscience about this approach, but then again I'd need to aggregate the data in some way or another.

I keep reading that web scraping is ubiquitous nowadays and that everybody does it.
