I received a fairly prompt response from AppStoreNotices@apple.com with regards to the Tile Cutter infringement I blogged about earlier today. They’ve sent an e-mail to Wang Ting, the “developer” fond of taking apps off of GitHub and selling them as his own creations. Apple has asked him to voluntarily take down TileCutter or provide evidence that he has the right to publish the app.
Maybe if Apple gets enough DMCA takedown notices for the same developer in a short enough period of time, they’ll consider doing the right thing. I’m not holding my breath, mind you, but I feel like I have to try and make the right thing happen if I can. Finding a way to get word all the rights holders seem the best and only way to do that right now.
