GNU, GPL, Open Source Some people swore to me that just because the free-software General Public License (GPL) clashes with the Apple App Store's Terms of Service (ToS), didn't mean that Apple would actually pull down GPLed apps. Well, Apple just did. Remi Denis-Courmont, a Linux developer of the popular VLC media player, has just announced that Apple had pulled the popular GPLed VLC media player from its App Store.

Quite a lot of GPL licensed Android applications listed there.

They weren't at all difficult to find.

Do you know how to read? The fifth colum of the wikipedia page tells you if the app is in the Android Market.
