Hello,

Is it legal to extract the information from those websites?

Can I extract the movie times from France' TVs using XmlTv, and make a website that lets users browse the TV and movie times?

Best regards,
DAvid

    It depends on the terms of use of the data source.

    Posting the data on another web site would be considered republishing and is usually not permitted.

    Scrapers view the data just like a web browser and many sites permit you to use the data for individual personal use. (viewed with a web browser or something else)

    As Robert stated, you would have to get clearance from the data provider. Usually, it is not possible to republish data without some form of licence.
