Have a gander at Yahoo's TOS (Terms of Service):

You agree not to modify the Software in any manner or form, nor to use modified versions of the Software, including (without limitation) for the purpose of obtaining unauthorized access to the Yahoo! Services. You agree not to access the Yahoo! Services by any means other than through the interface that is provided by Yahoo! for use in accessing the Yahoo! Services.

    I think it is irrelevant. I am not using Yahoo search URL.
      WWW::Babelfish ( service => 'Yahoo', ...

      How do you figure that code isn't using the Yahoo service?

      Also, URLs have nothing to do with it.

      Google's TOS delves deeper into what is meant by not-a-Google interface:
      5.3 You agree not to access (or attempt to access) any of the Services by any means other than through the interface that is provided by Google, unless you have been specifically allowed to do so in a separate agreement with Google. You specifically agree not to access (or attempt to access) any of the Services through any automated means (including use of scripts or web crawlers) and shall ensure that you comply with the instructions set out in any robots.txt file present on the Services.
      Some modules that are made to work with web services, like Net::Amazon::EC2, provide options to specify access keys, thus making their use legal.
