Over the last three years there has been a rapid proliferation of mashups as an emerging paradigm of Web 2.0. Mashups are applications that combine data and services provided through several open APIs, allowing the quick creation of custom applications by users. However, the intellectual rights associated with services and data associated with mashups are not focused intensively. In this paper, we explore the actors and roles involved in a mashup ecosystem and analyze the intellectual rights associated with mashups.
