Any way that anyone can think to display the IMDB rating for a movie?  Would love to include this as a report but don't see how its possible.

You might get lynched by the community for even suggesting this.

Ken has stated many times in these forums in various ways that he does not want  DVD Profiler in any way to have anything to do with IMDB or any other third party database. The simple answer is that it is possible but, it will NEVER happen. Unless he buys it. OH GOD the horror of that thought.

OK Skip you can tremble all you want now...

Yeah, while it's arguable whether data about films something IMDB can claim an ownership interest in, there seems little doubt to me that their ratings would be something they can solidly claim they own.

You might want to read Ken's statements again.  Third party information is NOT to be contributed and make part of the online DB (my emphasis).  Ratings are not contributed and they don't get into the database so I don't where there would be a problem.

The difference is that linking to the IMDB site is fine.  But scraping off the data (including the rating) is verboten.

Touti I copied this from IMDB terms of use which is what I sent to Ken sometime ago  when Intervocative was still in the picture.
