Abstract—Scraping is the activity of retrieving data from a website, often in an automated manner and without the permission of the owner. This data can further be used by the scraper in whatever way he desires. The a ctivity is deemed illegal, but the change in legality has not stopped people from doing the same. Anti-scraping solutions are being offered as rather expensive services, which although are effective, are also slow. This paper aims to list challenges and proposes mitigations techniques to develop a Software as a Product (SaaP) anti-scraping application for small to medium scale websites.
