The XMLTV project treads cautiously in this regard, and only
distributes grabbers that abide by the terms and conditions of the
source site(s) and honour the laws in effect in the country that the
listings data are obtained from. Grabbers have been (and will be)
removed from the distribution if their usage is found to be in breach
of a listings provider's terms, or explicit permission has not been
given to redistribute the data.
