FareChase uses software to “scrape” pricing information from American Airlines’ website. AA has now enjoined FareChase in Texas state court on a trespass theory. Denise (attorney for FareChase), has all the relevant papers, including a copy of the Temporary Injunction. Quote from another FareChase attorney:
. . . the court has, by this order, created a new property right not only for AA but for all large companies with Internet Web sites: the right to monopolize forever public information.
