Tui UK to stop screenscraping of

16th April 2009 - 19:06 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Ryanair has announced that Tui UK has agreed to stop unauthorised screenscraping of the Ryanair website in settlement of legal proceedings filed against it.

The English High Court approved the Cease and Desist Agreement which was signed by Tui on 26 March 2009 after it agreed not to make bookings on Ryanair’s website, which is in breach of Ryanair’s Terms of Use. Tui further agreed that it will not breach any of the Ryanair website’s Terms of Use in the future.
Ryanair welcomed Tui’s decision and confirmed that it is now reviewing legal proceedings against Thomas Cook after it was revealed that the latter – which it describes as “unauthorised screenscraping ticket-touts” – was charging a fictitious £40 “fuel surcharge” and “falsely inflating airfares” to consumers buying Ryanair tickets.
Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said, “This is another victory for Ryanair and consumers. Ryanair will continue to fight against screenscraper sites who resell Ryanair flights with hidden charges and fictitious fuel surcharges. Ryanair will continue to pursue unlawful and misleading ticket-touts in the courts in the interest of our passengers.”
