This is part of a ground swell of opposition to illegitimate patent demand letters from so-called patent assertion entities (PAEs), or "patent trolls". This draft legislation, according to the sponsor of the proposed bill, "increases transparency and accountability to ...
By Richard Stobbe The basic question "are APIs eligible for copyright protection?" has consumed much analysis (and legal fees) during the lawsuit between Oracle and Google, which started in 2010.
