Is Having an RSS Feed Just Giving Content Away for Free?

If you hate the idea of people seeing your work outside of your website, then don't have an RSS feed. It doesn't prevent your site from being scraped (nothing really does), but it isn't inviting people to your content the way RSS does.

But...

Don't you want people to read your stuff? Having an RSS feed is saying, "I'm happy to meet you where you are. If you like reading stuff over there, then great, read it over there. I just like it when you read my stuff."

It's hard enough to get people to care about your work anyway. Being extra protective over it isn't going to help that.
