A random thought regarding copyrights...

So... Oracle's suit regarding the copyrights of APIs has been upheld by the SCOTUS...

a random thought entered my mind: The HTTP protocol may be considered an API and every access to some URL which causes code to be executed is an API... Perhaps Google could stop indexing all Oracle properties on the web because they could "fear" being sued for misappropriating Oracle's APIs and require that Oracle submit by postal mail a letter from their lawyers with permission to index a page, including the URL and SHA2 hash of each page where Oracle gives Google permission to copy for indexing purposes. Then Google will only list pages which matches the provided SHA2 hash.
