HIT: Lookup Symbol

Thousands of 1 cent HITs from lyon1727 were posted that simply requested that you lookup the company name of different stock symbols (I'm lost on the proper terminology) Here's the instructions given

Lookup the following symbol SMDI

Hurray for clarity.....

Simple enough...Though seems like he could've found this information somewhere....But perhaps 40 bucks or so seemed easier to scrap a database for it together.

Bizarre. If this person was able to program something against the MT API to create these HITs, surely he could have programmed something against, say, the Yahoo Search API and gotten that information for free. Say, from this source that provides exactly the right information. Huh.

Not necessarily. In some cases, it's okay for me to pay you to come up with information, even if you are copying it from another source, where it wouldn't be legal for me to personally copy the information from the same source. I'm not sure if this is one of those cases or not.
