(IANAL, and laws and norms vary widely throughout the world, but certain things tend to remain consistent due to IP treaties. If you have a professional issue outside of your specialty, consult with a profesional.) Generally, legally, an API is not considered to be "intended for public consumption" unless it's actively documented as a public API, with ...

What you are talking about is likely fine. You are hyperlinking to information then transforming it. In Perfect 10, Inc. v.

While closetnoc has discussed the issue of the data itself, there's a larger legal concern: you are not authorized to access the API offering the data.

It probably depends on the nature of the data. Pure data (think telephone directory) cannot be copyrighted. So a list of cities from an API should be fair game to copy and show to users.

This is so they can avoid individual agreements with the thousands of musical artists they might want to air or stream.

A Good source to review would be here: import/export internet purchases @ U.S. Customs and Border website, Generally, the duty to comply lies on the the "purchaser" to be certain the item can in fact make it into/past customs with whatever duties or regulations may apply to it.
