I want to add IMDB movie ratings in my commercial website, as IMDB doesn't allow use of any bots/scraping, is it legit if I manually add the rating of movies (from IMDB) in my website?

There's a promotional slot for this widget in the right hand side of every /title/ page but I guess you might still be on reference view?
