Most people in technology would agree that a majority of API license agreements are fairly one sided as the technology company is giving users/developers their technology for free and the technology company can change the terms of API License Agreement at any time. But what if you don’t have an API license agreement and then all of a sudden you change your API program? Don’t you think its possible your API developers could upset and if they suffer damages as a result of the change and lose revenue dollars they might sue your company? With that said and the potential liabilities from your API developers it’s a good idea to contemplate putting an API license agreement in place to protect and limit your liability if your API changes. Because you cannot predict the future we know one thing is true: If you continue to evolve and develop successfully your API will change also so an API License Agreement will hopefully allow developers to have the same commensurate expectations.
