    Ok, so i modified wprobot to fetch articles from ezine.
    And in the last few hours i fetched like 1500+ articles and counting.

    Can i get into any REAl trouble by doing this? Except for being forced to remove the articles from my site?
    Has anyone ever got any serious warning/lawsuit for doing this?

    Also, i am leaving out the author box and deleting ALL links inside posts.

    There won't be any lawsuits.
    After few hours of scraping you'll get a Captcha blocking the article. Just change your IP and clear the cookies to remove the Captcha.

    hhmmm.. na, dont worry abt any lawsuits etc. worry about the content not being unique.. however autoblogs are meant for that only.. so just relax and let your robot burn the midnight oil.. ;)

    Spin them for uniqueness... WP robot allows for that.

    I don't think there's any risk doing it.
