We have good news about your RSS feed! Now, ownership in your RSS feed, iTunes, Stitcher, and anywhere else we distribute your content, lists you as the copyright holder. You’ve always had 100% ownership of your content but due to a labeling bug your name was not listed in that section of the feed. Take time to head to your settings and make sure your First Name and Last name are filled out in your account settings. Below, I’ll explain why the change took so long and how we were able to do it.
We have removed the database roadblock that prevented us from displaying proper ownership and copyright information in your RSS feeds. This means, the copyright name on iTunes, Stitcher, and other places your RSS feed distributes content will list your name. Please take time to make sure the correct name is in your account.To set your Author and Copyright Ownership, please proceed to your settings, and under Author/Contact Info, set your First Name, Last Name (which is used for the copyright field), and your Display Name (which is used as the author field) to what you want to be displayed in your RSS feed.
We hope this lays rumors to rest for good. The notion that somehow by hosting your podcast on BlogTalkRadio you would lose ownership of your content is false. We want to affirm, that is flat out untrue and has never been true at BlogTalkRadio. Hosts have always owned their content and rights to their original content. If you have any questions, email our support team. We’ll be happy to help.
