If it is there is the question becomes where are they getting the  
guide info? As I read the agreement I have with DataDirect it does  
not allow me to do something like this, although they could of course  
have come to some other agreement, or found another data source.

I more or less did, I asked them whether they would be providing the  
source with my purchase or simply providing a link to where I could  
download it.
