I can confirm that the same bot has hit eurorights.org. On average a couple
of hits per day. 72 unique requests the last month, don't have older logs
so I don't know when it started. IP addresses were through .38

URLs they are hitting:

/eudmca/                        (History about the EU copyright directive)
/eudmca/CopyrightDirective.html (Local copy of the EU copyright directive)

In addition, I found a single non-spider hit from the 198.26 netblock: - - [22/Aug/2001:02:25:31 +0200] "GET /eudmca/CopyrightDirective.html HTTP/1.0" 200 57660 "-" "Mozilla/3.01 (compatible;)"

As you say, this is a directed scan and not a regular spider since it doesn't
follow any of the other links on the / page.
