Google "Wired has obtained a copy of a cease and desist letter sent by Google to Microsoft today, demanding Microsoft immediately remove the YouTube app from its Windows Phone Store and disable existing copies on consumers' devices by May 22. The YouTube app for Windows Phone - developed by Microsoft not Google - strips out ads and allows downloading, both violations of YouTube's terms of service." Incredibly petty. Just come up with a solution, you bunch of kids.

Using your "logic," since Microsoft does not provide an official version of their Office suite for Linux... it is totally OK if I completely ignore the terms of their EULA and just run a pirated copy of the software under a WINE wrapper.

In any case, it's being fascinating seeing Apple, Google, and Microsoft trying to out-asshole each other.
