[Chicago-talk] Getting quotes from the CBOE

I want to download equity option data (like price, strike, expiration...)
On the CBOE's web page for delayed quotes they have the following
"PLEASE NOTE: IT IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED TO DOWNLOAD DELAYED QUOTE TABLE DATA
FROM THIS WEB SITE BY USING AUTO-EXTRACTION PROGRAMS/QUERIES AND/OR
SOFTWARE. CBOE WILL BLOCK IP ADDRESSES OF ALL PARTIES WHO ATTEMPT TO DO SO.
THIS DATA IS PROPERTY OF THOMSON FINANCIAL/ILX. DOWNLOADING THIS DATA IN ANY
OTHER WAY THAN BY MANUAL TICKER SYMBOL ENTRY IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED"
Once they put it on the web isn't the data public domain? Isn't this really
just scare language?
