Bio information is nothing, how many websites are using the same information.
Someones date of birth e.g 25/05/1970 is not copyrighted.
Using someones words can be unless they are free to use.
I personally think you are worrying about nothing for creating a website, so that you can use to scrape.
You can have images but as long as you acknowledge the owners, they usually let you get away with things.
Do you think that Google pay for all the images that they hold?

i don't think we could add these info in xbmc db, will be external.

They don't hold any images, just link to them. Trust me when I say that these concerns can be real especially in the US.
That being said, if we are scraping from each source individually it's not an issue. The problem is if you are talking about creating your own site to redistribute the info.
At the end of the day I don't think itsnreally a viable plan anyway - I would rather see the info just scraped from existing sources.

Celebrity database, looks like bios are scraped from wikipedia. Does link to some gallery images...
Right I'm thinking of a script scraping a combination of wikipedia and google images. I think we could get decent results with that combo for the majority of mainstream actors.

pretty suck for scrapping, they separate actor/actress/comedians...
then name and first name are separated with "-" or " " will lead to at most 6 try to get one people page

Yeah. Think the scraping wikipedia ourselves would be easier.

wikipedia seems to have a standard naming convention.

Yep! Just the name separated by underscores as far as i can tell.
