Is Web Scraping Legal?

In our opinion, most websites have their own claims on data application for example Amazon Website. Therefore, if you violate their rules, they would force you to stop. Therefore some sites wish not to be scraped.

Everybody wants to protect the data so this fear will never go away.

Which is good manually scraping or software tool?

Now a day, there are many web data scraping software available in the market. The software is beneficial but they have their limitation and also drawbacks.

Some websites are created entirely in flash.

For example, like content grabber is a scraping tool. This tool can only work with HTML content; therefore it can only scrap the flash file.

The software tool is so time-consuming. And it could take too much time to load and scrap data from millions of web pages. Flipkart.com website is the best example.

Software tool has the difficulty like difficult to analyze, data analysis, takes too much time, speed and protection problem

So choose the manual way that means developers can give the best result of any type of data scraping work.
