I created a Python API wrapper for a service, which I want to release as an open source python package if possible but not necessarily, the main issue is that I have a small python project where I need to use their API, not too many requests, if I could release it, that's better. The company is in my country, Lebanon
The company's terms of service forbid me from doing so, but they don't offer a python wrapper in the first place.
The company has two founders, one left and one works at google, I tweeted the first, sent a LinkedIn message to the second, asking for permission got no reply. The company has two email addresses, I sent emails to both addresses got no reply.
If the worst case scenario is them blocking my IP address, that's fine, but I wonder if they would be able to pursue legal actions against me even though I went above and beyond trying to ask for their permission without being able to reach them. Am I still violating their terms of service?\
For example if you use Google translate API for free, you are also violating their TOS, they only block your IP if they detect a large number of API requests and never sue the writer of the library, you could find many free Google translate libraries.
