Can I use Open Hub data to help power my commercial site?

While the Creative Commons Attribution license doesn’t prohibit commercial use of the data, the Open Hub TOU limits use of the site itself to non-commercial or business-internal uses only. The TOU also prohibits the use of automated “scraping” software or spiders to automatically visit pages and collect data. That said, you can use the Open Hub API to access the data programmatically which has its own API Use Agreement.
