You article is confusing, first its "Blizzard's free APIs coming out soon" then its "This stuff isn't free, of course"So what is it?

Using the API is at no cost to anyone. In other words if anyone wants to use the API they do not have to send money to Blizzard to use it.At the same time Blizzard's developers don't work for free. Blizzard had to use its money and resources to create (And not maintain) those APIs to make them usable.So the APIs are free and they're not. It just depends on which side you wish to look at it.

I think he meant that it's not free for the company to make APIs-- they need to pay devs to develop them.
