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:
