We do not have an agreement with Yahoo!. Rather, we have asked Yahoo! 
for clarification, and Yahoo! has examined their terms and conditions - 
without chaning them to accomodate us - and has said: Yes, we believe 
what you're doing is within the existing terms and conditions as long as 
you use our web API.
