www.screenrush.co.uk is an AlloCiné site so it seems likely the terms are the same or similar (though I couldn't find them). From my initial reading of AlloCiné's "Conditions générales d'utilisation du site" it is also on the list for replacement. One of my concerns is with VII. Propriété intellectuelle - Droit d'auteur - Droits voisins which seems to prohibit downloading.

My French is extremely poor (even when it was less so, I'd still describe it that way) so I'm depending heavily on Google's translation.

IMDb is just the one I'm starting with, all search scripts will be reviewed for compliance with the terms of the site(s) they use.

Yes, I'm thinking of something similar to the weather script search where everything in a certain directory will be queried to see if it implements the appropriate API. Any that do could then be selected to appear on a new menu after the search button (if only a single script were selected it would work exactly as it does now).
