The rapid growth of the Internet and social web communities has changed on-line merchandising. Opinions expressed on websites by the customers became useful information for new customers and product manufacturers. Opinion mining techniques started to be attractive as a method for processing user generated content with sentiment payload. Presented approach uses product reviews from e-commerce websites for the product feature opinion mining task. Manual data annotation process is avoided by fully automated building training data corpus. As a classifier CRF model is employed. Proof of concept on Polish e-commerce website was performed. Experiment has shown promising results.
