    Sounds like a website that shows all the results of all the other websites doing the same thing. Copyright might be a problem there unless it's hosted in some far flung lawless land.
    Thanks. Yes legalities are potentially a minefield.

    If you do use autotrader - how could you get around the copyright issue? Only use some of the description? etc

    would this project succeed in real life.? I doubt it. But then I doubted any of this comparison websites would make any money but here we are, they are making millions.
