Apple During last week's Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple introduced a new iPhone model, the iPhone 3GS, which comes, among other things, with a faster processor and more RAM. Since this is a developers' conference, there were also numerous sessions on iPhone development, and the last session was about publishing on the App Store. Since every session at every WWDC is always followed by an open Q&A session, you'd figure this'd be the perfect opportunity for iPhone developers to ask about Apple's App Store policies. Well, no.

You’re not giving away anything. No company can take your rights away.

You don’t rent the iPhone, you buy a unit of it. Be it subsidized or not. Likewise, you don’t license the OS, you buy a copy of it and you can do whatever you want with it since it’s your propriety. I can use the OS X DVD to cut cheese or tear the DVD apart if I want.

Don’t be fooled into this “we license it to you” BS that companies want you to believe. You sure don’t license a car or a book, why should it be any different for gadgets or software?
