Conditions for using the public HTTP API

We’ve been offering our public LanguageTool HTTP API for quite some years and it’s used by several websites. However, some of these websites don’t give credit to LanguageTool at all and I think that’s not fair, especially for those kinds of websites that basically just copy LT functionality.

Thus, I’ve changed the rules under which the public HTTP API can be used: we now expect users who use the API to power a public website to set a link back to https://languagetool.org. I think that’s not too much to ask for. In the next few weeks, I’ll contact the sites that don’t link back yet and ask for a link.

Fair enough.
