Doesn't looks good. :-(
Can you try again using the SQLAlchemy ORM?
Basically, you have to install it (if not already present on your system),
and add to the command line of imdbpy2sql.py: -o sqlalchemy

The same time, sorry.  No way to do otherwise, trust me. :-)

Hmmm.... I guess that most of the person who does some kind of
analysis/heavy use of the data, uses the SQL access.
Plugins of media centers, small scripts and so on, mostly uses
the web access.

I'm not a lawyer and so my opinion is worth about zero, but... :-)
I guess that if you just process the data, show the result of this processing
and so on (i.e. you do some transformation on it, not just printing it out
exactly as taken from the db), you're on the safe side.
Also, don't forget to put links to the imdb.com site and a footer which
explain the copyright of the data.
