So if you leave your car door unlocked, it is OK for me to take your CD
player? They don't want people using their data for Myth and other PVR
products anymore. Their TOS expressly forbids you to do what you are
proposing to do and you try to justify it and place the blame on them.
It is not their fault you need to find a new listings source, and it is
not their fault that their TOS says you can't scrape their data. Just
because you don't like the rules doesn't mean you don't have to follow them.
Your opinion is irrelevant. Their TOS forbids scraping. Why is this
all that hard for people to accept?
