Use of Yahoo Finance API to get stock quotes


I am working on a website project for a client. My client would like to have 15 mins delayed quotes in this website.

My first question is: is the quote redistribution free of charge? or should we obtain some license? If so, how does it work? Second, we are using the csv file method. But I could not find the ID we should put for each stock. For instance, I know that Microsoft corp ID is MSFT but how to find TELEFONICA's ID? I tried with TEF.MC which is the symbol for this stock but it does not work so basically how to get the stock API ID from the symbol?


Best regards,
