Apple Removes VLC From the App Store


Apple has removed VLC from the App Store after receiving a formal notification of copyright infringement from VLC developers.

The notification of infringement was filed because Apple’s iTunes Terms and Conditions don't allow users to install both free and paid apps on more than 5 devices. This goes against the original GNU license VLC's code is based on.

VLC developer RĂ©mi Denis-Courmont said, "At last, Apple has removed VLC media player from its application store. Thus the incompatibility between the GNU General Public License and the AppStore terms of use is resolved - the hard way. I am not going to pity the owners of iDevices, and not even the MobileVLC developers who doubtless wasted a lot of their time. This end should not have come to a surprise to anyone."
