Scraper offers me revshare for better access
A new level of gall

 1:07 am on Jul 11, 2010 (gmt 0)

I received this kind offer today:

"Currently, we are anonymously scraping your site, and have extended an olive branch to offer you 10% of the ad revenue for your site's channel if you will provide us with a more stream lined method of picture/URL capture."

Hey 10%! Where do I sign?

You should sign them up and then set a trap with the streamlined method and block them :)

For starters, check the email headers + whois the domain name.

Chances are the email originates from their server. Analyze the requests from that range and blackhole those suckers.

Yeah.. trap them in a way that sends their server resource sky high.

Sounds like a plan, but they contacted me through my web from. incrediBIll's solution has merit...

When you detect the scraper action send him the images as a binary stream that never ends (at a very low bitrate).

After all, you have an agreement to share all your data, right?
