You're probably right (but I'm no lawyer). It would explain why stat services usually put clauses in their terms and conditions that restrict users from disseminating the data they provide. They fall back on contract law when IP law fails them.

German copyright law extends copy to so-called "databases", if "there was significant effort in acquiring, checking or presenting the content" (§76c UrhG). That might apply to statistics too.

(But US copyright law is probably a lot different than german law)


Any idea if its possible to access data from or for data mining and visualization purposes?
