Hi,

Where can I find more data on usage limits of the api, legal stuff and pricing for "pro" users?

You can find the basic terms of use here. If you have any more detailed questions, PM @rorie or contact support@giantbomb.com.

I don't think there's any practical usage limit on the API, but you do need to be aware that the standard policy is that there's no commercial use allowed.

How do you define commercial use?

Can I use the API on a website/iPhone app to shows ads?

Can I use the API on a website/iPhone app that uses Amazon's referral program?

@godmoney: I could make an educated guess at what the answer would be to those questions, but you're probably going to be best off asking support or Rorie about them.

@godmoney: If you're making money by leveraging the API in any way, then it probably isn't allowed, but like Gamer said, you should contact Rorie via PM or the support e-mail address to verify.
