+1. Agree. It is my product that is purchased. No more should OneForty own the customer relationship than an affiliate of mine should own the relationship for having referred a sale to me.
The other thing that really bugs is me the payment of the 70% in the form of a gift or donation. I cannot show that in the Sales Revenue of my business. If the amount becomes substantial, how do I explain to the tax man why my for-profit incorporated company is getting all these gifts and donations? And how do I do the accounting for my product units that were sold, but did not generate any top-line revenue? The idea behind OneForty is novel, but I think they face an uphill battle, because they do not have the monopoly on app distribution that the Apple App Store has. Hence, it will not work to try and apply the same business rules as the Apple App Store.
