APIs & Copyrights

3,366

Published on


The EU has ruled that APIs are not copyrightable and the jury is literally still out in the USA. The implications of a decision could have far-reaching consequences for software and API-based businesses. Should APIs be covered by copyright law? Would developers and innovation be stifled by copyrightable APIs? Or would it afford protection over IP?
Join the Apigee team for a discussion of the pros and cons, and the potential consequences if APIs are held to be copyrightable.
