Bulk Access to Whois Data

    I was thinking about something for a project I might work on and I became curious.

    My question mainly is where do websites get their whois data from.

    Just looking for a place to download the information once a day then process it.

    I read into arin.net not sure if that informatin can be used for commercial purposes, such as expiring domain name lists etc.

    From what I read the information is free, can't be redisturted. If you allow access to the whois information it has to limited so it can not be harvested by advertisers.

    Any more informaiton would be great.
    Thanks

    The best way to get access to it would be to become a registrar (like Google did).
