I'm not sure the initial owners are still working on it from Amazon.

     The first web version of the database went live
     on the servers at Cardiff University in Wales.
     There is a fun bit of e-mail dating back to those
     days between web interface author, Rob Hartill,
     and Col Needham, both impressed when the web
     interface got 100 accesses in a single day. Prior
     to the latest redesign, the IMDb website has been
     serving an average of 65 million accesses from
     over 3.5 million visitors every month. With the
     improvements and new features added in the
     redesign, this could well go higher.

Then on wikipedia

     "He's currently a volunteer fire-fighter
     with the Country Fire Service and a hobby

     "currently is the managing director
     of the Internet Movie Database."

The access to the full database is available on IMDB Web site, and  
usable only with a very limited license.
