Do Arb Services need permission from Bookmakers to track their odds?

One service said they no longer carry this Bookmaker or that Bookmaker because the Bookmaker declined to have their odds displayed by that service.

I thought the Arb Services could design bots to tack the odds and that the odds were public information on a website.

Permission no. They can block your servers IP though so you'd be unable to access their site. But if you do they can't prevent you from doing so, odds aren't copyrighted like articles or pictures are they?

I dont know, but when you want data you should have to ping sites and bookie servers see that kind of activity. So they have to have some kind of aproval
But maybe someone could give better answer

Technically (and very loosely) they hold the copyright to anything displayed on their sites and can restrict certain traffic if they want to

I doubt there are that many services blocked though - just wouldn't make sense for a bookie to restrict traffic unless is was due to legislation of a particular country - that is the most likely cause - the service would be based in a country that was blocking the bookie and not the other way round
