Using MovableType hacks, Eyebeam created reBlogging.

Except, of course, that Drupal has always been able to do that: classify feeds with different keywords automatically, and then individually tag them with different keywords if desired.

If you're logged into this site, all the external feeds (two on the front page -- Friends and Interesting, plus of course all the other feeds) have little "blog it" links next to them. I can select a set of taxonomy terms, re-title it, and just publish it straight up.Actually, the import contributed module goes one step further.

Imported feeds are actually first-class nodes, essentially indistinguishable from regular postings. And they can also be tagged with taxonomy terms automatically, in order to set up custom re-feeds.

Copyright? Right-of-first syndication?

It's turtles all the way down, I suppose.
