Hi, say that I have a site all about widgets. Would it be fair/ethical to scout around the net/directories and compile a big free directory of all widget sellers internationally? (simply name, phone number and address).The widget sellers could then, if they wanted, upgrade at a later date to a premium listing for a fee.
- Is it copyright/theft in getting the original list?
- Would it be that the widget sellers may get upset at having been put on the site as a free listing in the first place without first being asked? (I'd have thought they'd be happy?)
