Stocks can be fun - anywhere I can suck data for a stock ticker?

So I wanna get back into programming and I've been thinking on what could be a fun project, so I came up with the idea of making stock ticker ie. a display that shows running data with stock prices only I need a way to get the data. Anyone heard of a site with an API one can use or something similar?
Example found on youtube

Alternatively I suppose I could create a data scraper that grabs the data from a website show stock information, but that seems like a rather crude solution plus I could see such a solution being blocked by the site owner.
