How the 10 Worst is web scraping legal in india Fails of All Time Could Have Been Prevented
- May 15, 2022
In my personal opinion, scraping websites is absolutely legal. I’m not a lawyer or a judge, but I’ve never seen a legitimate case where it was found to be illegal. I’ve heard of illegal (but not illegal) “scraping” and other illegal activities carried out online. While this is a gray area, I will say that the law is probably very clear on the matter.
It’s also possible that even if you’re scraping a website legally, in some countries you could still be prosecuted for using it for nefarious purposes. However, this is a very very grey area and you should always consult with a lawyer to make sure this is not the case.
We’re not going to delve into the legality of scraping in any depth here, but for the purposes of this blog post I’ll point out that it’s definitely illegal. In the UK you can be charged up to six months in prison and fined up to £6,000 for that crime. In India, the law is actually quite vague, but as we will see, the Indian Penal Code has some vague provisions on the matter.
In the USA, a website can be taken down by the FBI after they find that they have used a person’s e-mail address to send out spam. In India, however, this is not a problem. The only time when a website can be taken down is if the person who created the website has been arrested for copyright infringement. For example, when I wrote an article about Google’s privacy policies, I was able to write it without any fear of being sued.
In India, scraping is called “web scraping” or “web scraping in India” and the law allows the local police to go after those who do it. To know if your home is being scraped by the authorities, contact the police.
There are certain privacy concerns, such as who can access your personal information, but it is definitely something that you can do something about. You can get the police to take down your website if you have any legal grounds for it. In the end, if you don’t like the scraping, you can always ask the police to remove it by providing them with evidence that you are the person behind it.
There is a legal issue with scraping but it can be done. If you have any legal reason to find out what a site is doing, or if you see it being scraped, you can send them pictures. The authorities may or may not take action on the basis of the pictures, but with some sites you can probably get them to take action if you can get them to prove ownership of the pictures.
We did not find any evidence of the scraping, but we did find a few sites having been scraped with no legal basis. In most cases it would be easier to prove ownership of the pictures.
But with sites like Wikipedia and Google, we can prove ownership of any information we find on them. So in other words, we can prove that any information we find on a site is accurate.
The same is true for any information you find on any site whether it be a picture or a video or information about an event, or whatever. All it takes is the right information, the right tools, and the right people to get you there.
