I guess I was attempting to ask if they can blanket copyright the logic in an API so that you can't create an API similar to another API based on a high level description (although I'm probably getting patents confused here).

So from your nice explanation the implementation/logic is what is being copyrighted and not the purpose or "idea" behind the API itself.

A language that doesn't affect the way you think about programming is not worth knowing.

Working...
