A "Corpobot," short for "Corporate Robot," refers to a type of web crawler or web scraping tool that is designed to extract content from various websites for commercial purposes. Unlike traditional web search engines that aim to index and provide relevant information to users, corpobots are focused on collecting data specifically for business applications, marketing, analysis, or other profit-driven endeavors. They are often used by companies to gather competitive intelligence, monitor market trends, or build databases of relevant information.
Corpobots can be programmed to extract specific types of information, such as text, images, product details, prices, reviews, and more, depending on the business needs. However, it's important to note that the use of corpobots raises ethical and legal considerations, especially when scraping data from websites that don't explicitly allow such activities.
This is one of those sites - the Creative Commons licence specifically prohibits use of this content for commercial reasons and because GDPR is a thing that exists in the real world if I catch you in my logs, expect to get a shitty email.
