Does a meta search engine like Mamma or MetaCrawler pay any royalty fee to
the originators of the content like Yahoo or Altavista since these meta-SEs
make use of the content provided by the reals SEs? It seems rather unfair
that they get away making use of the content without paying!

BTW, does anyone have any idea about an open-source, mission critical search
engine spider?
