DATA/WEB SCRAPING QUESTIONS

1. What is data scraping and web scraping? 

Working on a research article, and will be presented soon.

2. Can Search engines, and Data aggregators (as Nieman lab points out) be considered as web scrapers? 


3. If a website gets DMCA protection, can that website then be seen in search engine results? 

BUILDING OWN SEARCH ENGINE

By the way, if someone were to be interested to develop one's own search engine, what should this person know about DMCA protection? If every website is DMCA protected, can search engine work in the first place?

SHINE THE LIGHT LAW & DMCA COMBO

Would Shine the Light law along with DMCA help in making the playing field leveled for everyone going back to the roots of liberty and equality - Government of the people, by the people, and for the people (By the way, who came up with this slogan popularized by President Abraham Lincoln)
