imo, framing other people's pages = displaying someone else's website content under a different domain name without the consent of the originator is in fact illegal. it has to be, always, regardless the actual purpose and w/o ads on the frame. the offender profits either way, be it directly through ad placements or as an additional "service".
why apparently no one is willing to take even the local copycats to court (especially noticed some "people search engines" high in the serps earning their ad money with this practice) is completely beyond me. and let's make no mistake, above all of course: google, framing in their search cache. this should also be regarded illegal, as i really haven't given them my permission. you can only opt out (robots noarchive) - now how should i "opt out" of every single web service who tries to frame my content?
so there still seems to be a lack of juridical decisions. along with automatic scraping really one of the biggest annoyances in terms of internet copyright.
