Apple While we were al busy getting knickers in twists over section 3.3.1 of the new iPhone developer agreement, Apple hoped to sneak another, possibly more far-reaching change past us. All Things Digital, however, got hold of section 3.3.9, which could effectively kill all third party ad networks - granting an insurmountable advantage to Apple's own iAd network.

The platform doesn't exist to make devs happy it exists for the users, and at this point both section 3.3.1 and 3.3.9 make a better experience for the user.

Those 2 sections will effectively limit the number of quality content available for iPhone/iPad and ban anything other than iAds from mobile advertising on iPhone/iPad. Pure and simple. You can rationalize it the way you want, but it will boil down to that.
(FYI: OMG! Pirates and a bunch of others will be in breach of section 3.3.1 if enforced)
