Some time ago a noticed that Yahoo's JSON requests for indian stocks are failing - the response has the string "Not a valid parameter" Instead of the required JSON string. Setting the user agent string to a mobile browser fixes fixes this issue - I tries with the UA string for a Motorola moto G. 1. Is there any issue with 'faking' the user-agent in this manner? 2. Should such a patch be pushed to the yahoo-json module? 3. Does anyone know if Yahoo terms now prohibit use of the JSON fetch? Abhijit
