Hi folks, Laura again. We hear you loud and clear that the contract needs to change - and we agree. We are working on that!
Definitely under review = payment minimum threshold and lag time; how the customer relationship is fairly shared if you sell through us, contract cancellation policy and other points. Re: payments to resellers are "donations" that is not our understanding and I have asked our atty to clarify. We definitely expect developers to need to function as businesses for everyone to succeed. We aim to support that, not complicate your tax dealings! :) can you LMK the specific clause #/s that make it sound like that? The guys are going to weigh in today re: oauth. I know like many of you, figuring out how to imlement it just right has taken time, learning and iteration. Thanks for your patience while we continue to figure out how best to be of service. Dewald you are sweet to think of the risk we face by being as open as we can be and by not being monopolistic like Apple. We're idealist enough to believe that if we make it easier for others to build their businesses we all win together. As always, thanks for all feedback - pro or con - this is what we are in Beta mode to learn. We appreciate your time and insights.
