Web crawlers may breach UK copyright Taking "temporary copies" illegal. Reading free websites from work poss bre graeme_p msg:4344423 10:32 am on Jul 27, 2011 (gmt 0) The appeals court has ruled that web crawlers require a license to take even temporary copies of a site. It may have ramifications in other cirumstances. [ ] prca.org.uk [ ] paidcontent.co.uk I am trying to find a copy of the ruling.

it looks like the ruling was worded to affect any and all user agents, not just web crawlers. i wonder if they would consider the memory in the video card to be a "temporary copy"... lucy24 msg:4345639 2:02 am on Jul 30, 2011 (gmt 0)
Is this another of those things like cookie legislation where the people who wrote the rules are simply clueless about what they're actually doing? Maybe they could ask their 20-year-old interns to explain it to them.
