    Well, that depends where you're getting that information from. If you're taking those details from a public page such as the yellow pages, I doubt that you would need any.

    Now, if you're building a database with all the information yourself, then yes, you do.

    I think so yes. Of course, I may be wrong. I haven't read the law or anything but I would say that you have the right to control where you want your name to show

    Yes, you could... that's what many of these resources/sites do. If not for publishing their public data that which you do not need their permission to publish (like if they're in the yellow or white pages), maybe to some kind of premium service or whatever.

    Of course, you should always check the law in your country but I think this is true for most countries.
