"SQL data structures" (it is not clear what exactly is the technical
item this ruling speaks about, but nevermind) is a way of getting a
job done. C data structures used in an API is a way of communicating
to existing code which job you want done.

And the quesion, by the way, concerned Lisp APIs. I don't think you
can copyright the cons cell.
