Yahoo finance API service is being discontinued - 403

Hi,

I am using yahoo finance API for several months inside 'ServiceNow' system. 

Yesterday I got this message: 

<title>Yahoo! - 403 Forbidden -- error 403</title>
</head>
<body>It has come to our attention that this service is being used in violation of the Yahoo Terms of Service. As such, the service is being discontinued. For all future markets and equities data research, please refer to finance.yahoo.com.</body>

 

How can I reset the usage? Can I use the API with a licence (with payment)?

 

Thank you in advance

Are there plans to provide this service in another fashion to the thousand of individuals who simply download stock data into MS Excel using this API?

 

Surely something is being worked on - or are we just screwed?
