Games I think we need to start a digital rights category or something (the next version of OSNews will have it, for sure), because we have yet another article about this subject. After Sony removed the Other OS feature from the PlayStation 3, a European PlayStation 3 owner successfully secured a partial refund from Amazon under the European Sale of Goods Act. Sony has now retaliated, stating it is not going to reimburse retailers.

You're right of course, but one might argue that that is the price one pays for such an easy market to get into. Personally I do think Apple makes some insanely stupid decisions regarding apps (Google Voice for example).

However, developers run into the same type of "we own you" mentality in the F/OSS world too. Just try contributing to Debian without being a favorite son, for example. The only difference is iPhone developers lose money as well as time spent on their projects.
