I was wondering if anyone bring to light whether it is OK to web scrape a web page that does not have a terms of service so that the content can be used within a monetized mobile app? What I mean by web scarpe is that when the app is loaded, it downloads the HTML of the page and then you scrape for certain components within the HTML. I've tried contacting the owner of the site, but he or she is not responding.
What do you guys think?
Thanks in advance!

Difference between making an mobile application where it's known where the content come from and just ripping data from a database and calling it your own.
In FFFFOUND's case I think they made it quite clear that the images / content comes from FFFFOUND.

It's strange how the dev was able to pull off using the same name as FFFFOUND and sell it in marketplace. Maybe I'm missing something?
