Specifically, I have been more and more involved in scraping data for various clients and I've gotten quite good at it.
Recently I acquired about 1.5GB of UK property sales data for a client, and it got me thinking:
- is there an organized market where one could sell such data?
- what is the legal status of scraping? some resources seem to say it's legal because you're just gathering information that's already publicly posted, some say it's in some sort of grey area or dependent on the specific website's terms of service
- has anyone made good money through scraping and would like to share their experience?
