You won't be able to do what you're asking. Bloomberg/Businessweek (and most other sites that offer subscriptions and enhanced services for a fee) try not to make it too easy to scrape or bulk download data from their public websites.

So from the above, I don't think what you're asking is something you're allowed to do. Or if so, certainly not free of charge. Sorry!

You didn't browse very far then. Under Links select Content Licensing and then click the huge purple Contact Us button. This will take you to a webmail form where you can put in your contact information and express your request to use their data.

I'm sure it won't be free, but it might be not as expensive as you think. Give it a try. Doesn't cost a thing to reach out.
