Can I manipulate and display web page results I get from the api in any manner I desire providing I only use results from the api and do I have to display and sort of microsoft logos or microsoft provided ads I am all for displaying microsoft ads if I can display web results in the fashion I see fit. Also, what are the restrictions (if any) as far as the amount of content I can retrieve and display Is there a daily limit on results, a limit on how many results can be displayed at a time, no limits etc etc Thanks very much for any info.

according to TOU section #4:

In developing, distributing or hosting Authorized Applications, and in using the service, except as otherwise explicitly permitted by Microsoft in writing, you may not:

  • display in the Authorized Applications any results returned from the service (including maps, photographic imagery, legends, digital watermarks, advertising, user interface elements, text, graphics, colors, logos and such other elements as we may choose to make available via the service from time to time) in a manner that modifies, adds to, minimizes, alters, obscures, blocks or misrepresents any portion of the results;

we have daily restriction on # of queries you can send to live search (25k/day). i believe for each query call you can specify to get up to 50 results but you can use offset to get more results in seperate calls of the same query.
