2. In related news, people using the social aggregator website Reddit started a discussion on the legality of scraping the web for data, which could be used in some machine learning applications. The original poster cited a recent ruling by a California appeals court, which found that it's generally legal to scrape public websites without approval to glean massive amounts of data; the ruling was based on LinkedIn's legal dispute with HiQ, a data analytics firm, which LinkedIn tried to (unsuccessfully) block from scraping its site. As of Wednesday, the Reddit post had nearly 50 comments. One user asked, "So does this mean I can repost the tinder dataset I had on Kaggle without getting a DMCA from Match group llc?" A responder noted that "You can scrape it, you can't share it legally." Another poster wrote that scraping "doesn't mean you're free to use" the data, citing an example of taking images from Disney's website and then sharing it, which they surmise would result in immediate lawsuits. - R/MACHINELEARNING / REDDIT
