The judicial system is a better place for this, I think. Congress has the technical aptitude of a chipmunk. Whereas there's a real chance at least 5 justices might grasp the insanity of copyrighting APIs enough to rule against it. Judicial precedent also makes it harder for Congress to pass laws which directly support the reverse.
