Mashups using the same API (461)
In what might be a first in the world of open APIs and mashups, a developer has been sued by a major corporation for developing an application using a third party web service API. As TechCrunch's Jason Kincaid reports, Ryan Sit, the talented developer behind a number of popular mashups is being sued by EMI for his application Favtape because it uses the Seeqpod API. Of course it's not unusual for a record label to aggressively use the courts to defend copyright, but this appears to take the battle to a new ground. As Jason describes:
What's that song? If you're out and about, you might reach for your mobile phone's "name that tune" app, such as Shazam on iPhone. But if you're at your PC, it can be as easy as clicking over to the Audiggle app, which reports on sound from video, internet radio, or anything passing audio to your speakers.
Want to create web mashups about music? You have lots of sources to choose from as there are over 25 music APIs listed on ProgrammableWeb including most popular Last.fm API. Music APIs can aid developers with library metadata, streaming radio databases, social interaction features, and more.
