This blog has a new feature: if things work fine, you should see a PHP driven block called ‘Latest Japanese Copyright News’ in the frontpage’s sidebar.
require_once() statement includes a file called
rss.php, which grabs an RSS file and converts it to a series of links. The RSS file on its turn is generated by the fabulous Feedster blog search engine, and should consist of a set of links to topics related to this blog’s. The query currently used is
(probably to be reviewed sooner or later) and seems to produce useful results, though clearly with some false positives. Also, credit where credit is due:
title=(japan) AND description=(copyright OR "open source" OR filesharing OR "public domain" OR "file sharing" OR "creative commons") NOT (description=("copyright (2003 OR 2004)") OR permalink="akira.arts.kuleuven.ac.be/andreas")
rss.php is powered by a slightly tweaked version of the Suttree PHP RSS parser‘s ‘t3h Geek’ variant.
