Get VLC Player for iPhone and iPad Before It’s Pulled from App Store
Posted on November 1, 2010 by eli courey
Rémi Denis-Courmont, one of the primary developers of the VLC Media Player, claims the App Store is infringing the VLC license. He sent a formal notification to Apple about the copyright infringement. VLC will most likely get pulled from the App Store very soon, so be sure and get it now if you haven’t already.
VLC media player is free software licensed solely under the GNU General Public License (GPL) and Apple is violating the terms of the GPL through its App Store usage rules which restrict free and open distribution of applications by applying Digital Rights Management (DRM) that prevents users from freely sharing the application.
