I’ve been in the business of data extraction and web scraping for more than 10 years now. As the owner of Price2Spy - a price monitoring tool, capable of scraping not only prices but much other information from websites I got complaints and some website owners even threatened me with legal consequences if I don’t stop gathering data from their websites.
This leads me to my question - how damaging to your business do you find competitors who are scraping data from your website?
I recently started building a new product - BotMeNot - a bot protection score service https://botmenot.com/. Do you think this would be helpful for your anti-bot efforts?
