    I want to copy/mimick another online store by selling the same products but at a lower rate. Anyone know how to do this without them suing me by making it look more distinct?

    Copy/mimick in what way? Same name? Or just products, site design etc.

    You need to be more specific.

    yes, i want to sell to other people through the post, when they purchase it off my website i go to the competitor website and buy it off them and they post it to the buyer for me so i dont have to pay postage

    As long as you're not copying their design you're good. Just cause your selling the same products doesn't mean anything. Do you think your local grocery store can sue amazon for selling the same bottled water they sell? No!! Just make sure you don't copy their design template.

    Why? Just look around and find a copy of WebSpinx, install Java, and scrape the site.

    I have the script bu it's not finished and need a lot of optimizations ... anyway if the script are ready it should copy entire contents and convert it to any sort of data you want (DB XML HTML ..etc)
