|ProgrammableWeb.com : Perhaps the most notable part of the story is towards the end when discussing how Trulia, a for-profit business and not just a hobbyist site, is beginning to run into one of the core mashup issues: data ownership, royalties, and how to share revenue. As their business grows, Google has expressed an interest in sharing.|
There's an issue here that is raising it's ugly head.
When an API is provided by a commercial company, to what extent should they be entitled to share in profits generated by a commercial company using it?
My gut feel is "None, No way". If they want to share in the profits they can buy me. And/Or they should share *their* profits with me because I've made their service more valuable.
