Hi,

Yes, you can.
You can use YAHOO! stockfeeds and such, but you are expected to say that you
use YAHOO! on the site where you use them. (or their derivates, such as
indexes you create.)

Otherwise they are free.

Hi,

I didn't read it.
I had the same problem as you had: I am a programmer, and when I read legal
texts written by lawyers, I get sick and must puke for half an hour.
Those guys/girls just cannot think straight, so they need unreasonable long
sentences to mask that fact.

So this is how I know you CAN use them:
I was building a stockindex (RFID) for a customer of mine. I needed random
access to any fund to incorperate it into their index.
After I wrote my code I contacted them and told them I was unsure about the
legal status of querying YAHOO! financial pages.

After they spend some time on their website, they decided that it was
completely unclear.
So they send an email, asking the question.
They received a clear answer, stating what I told you: You can use them free
of charge, as long as you SAY that you use YAHOO! to get the data.

Maybe you should send an email too.

IF that has no succes, I can ask my customer, if you can contact them and
maybe read their email, but I prefer not. But if you get stuck, I will ask
them.

Thank you very much, i really appreciate your answer.

I sent 3 mails to yahoo Italia, but i got only those unfriendly
robot-answer.

i can wait some days before getting stuck ;)

and of course, i will keep sending email to them.

I think i will write to us/eng support too.

Best Regards
