Oracle's surprise win in Java API case could make it harder for developers | Java programming - InfoWorld

"Devs will now need to worry about the potential for API lock-in via copyright, as alternative suppliers can’t produce like-for-like substitutions without risk. I don’t see how this is good for developers as it amps up the fear, uncertainty, and doubt about using third-party services." Donnie has a detailed piece as well, along with this example: This is going to create a lot of difficulty for everyone reimplementing S3 APIs, for example, such as OpenStack and others, with the exception of Eucalyptus because of its Amazon partnership.

Opponents of smoking ban meet at Broken Spoke
I'm all for banning smoking. I'm tired of going out and smelling like an ash-tray afterwards. Second-hand smoke stinks, end of story.
