Description Public sector information provided via Open API will become more prominent next to Open Data. This trend is clear from the proposal of PSI Directive Recast, where Open API is recommended for dynamic datasets like traffic data collected thanks to the IoT sensor networks. This paper examines if and how Open API interacts with sui generis database rights with the accent on the limitations of such rights. Following issues are addressed: I) Open API and its differences from Open Data; II) effect of Open API on the protected database and III) application of exceptions and limitations of such rights.
