I just saw this posted on the KnoppMyth forums, and for sure, I checked 
out the Zap2it Labs website, and there is the announcement:



For several years we have offered a free TV listings service to 
hobbyists for their own personal, noncommercial use. In October of 2004 
we posted here an open letter saying the future of Zap2it Labs was at 
risk because of certain growing misuses of the Zap2it Labs data. 
Unfortunately this misuse has continued and grown. These misuses, 
combined with other business factors have led to the decision to 
discontinue Zap2it Labs effective September 1, 2007.

We thank those users who have honored the terms of the agreement, and we 
suggest you consider the many TV listings options offered by the 
commercial licensees of TMS TV listings data.

If you would like to discuss how to license TV listings for commercial 
use, please let us know by e-mail (labs at zap2it.com) and include your 
company name, telephone number and the best time to reach you. We will 
respond to your inquiry as soon as possible.

We anticipate this decision will generate discussion and invite you to 
respond via the Zap2it Labs forum. We will do our best to respond to 
relevant questions posted on this forum in a timely manner.
