Mashups using the same API (33)
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:
Echo Nest's API already powers hundreds of music apps (e.g. MTV, Music Hunter, Pocket Hipster, etc.). With new enhancements to its API, Echo Nest looks to expand its reach beyond the music industry by "us[ing] music to drive non-music apps." Echo Nest added "Taste Profile Similarity" and an "affinity prediction" system to its existing platform. With the new features, Echo Nest hopes to connect music listeners to other listeners with similar tastes and predict behavior unrelated to musical preferences.
Music mashups are one of our most popular categories, with over 300 music mashups listed. It also makes for a variety of different types of applications, from lyrics to audio to video and more. The mashups below all use Last.fm, which has the distinction of being used by nearly half of all music mashups.
