Apple Do you like VLC on your iPhone or iPad? You don't yet have it installed, but want to? Well, then you'd better be quick about it, as some VLC contributors are unhappy with the fact that VLC is distributed through Apple's App Store, violating the GPL the video player is licensed under. At least, that's what some think.

Well I read the Ars article already, they had one whole sentence about other app stores. Basically that this may affect other app stores. Well, duh! Android doesn't have a problem though. You don't HAVE to go through the Android app store to install software on your Droid. Therefore, there is no need to go to any other site except the source of the app. But Google isn't bent on making everyone use them as the source of all apps so I guess we'll be ok there.
