I'm looking into providing search capability on my website that will search within my niche for products on the major websites and provide the summary of these products om my website based on various bargain algorithms.
The user can then based on summary click on the top bargain and be forwarded to the website.
Eg. User searches for Y model of X product. I then search on ebay, A website, B website, C website, aggregate the listings, compare and rate them and display them on my website based on various algorithms. From there the user can click on one of the ads and be forwarded to the website that has the ad.
Based on my knowledge of the niche, my algorithms will be very attractive and I intend to sell this service as a subscription.
Any idea on if this is copyright infringement and possibly what I can alter in the concept to make it legal ?

If you decide to risk it, servers can monitor your IP, blacklist it, contact your host to take your server offline and yes you also risk copyright infringement.
