Digital Content and the Legality of Web Scraping

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Web scraping - the process of using bots to systematically lift content from a website - is either loved or hated. Startups love it because it’s a cheap and powerful way to gather data without the need for partnerships. Large companies use web scraping to gain competitive intelligence, but try to block others from doing the same. However, new legislation and high profile court cases have called into question the legality of web scraping.

In this lively conversation, diverse panelists will discuss the origin of web scraping, the changing legal landscape, and the legal and technical best practices for protecting your website content.
