Scrape unto others as they would scrape unto you
: Well, ain’t it ironic that Google is stopping others from scraping its “content” when it’s “content” is nothing but that which Google scraped from others.
That is, a guy started to scrape GoogleNews to create RSS feeds and Google is blocking him — even though Google makes GoogleNews by scraping the headlines of news sites. What if those news sites did what Google did? Ah, you say, but they wouldn’t because they want Google links and traffic. And that puts Google in the seat of power. And now Google is flexing its power against the little guy.
Sounds evil to me.
