Google Without giving any detailed information, Madfinger Games announced that because the piracy rates of their game Dead Trigger were so high on Android, they made the game available for free. This sucks balls. I'm interested in more detailed statistics, especially where, exactly, the piracy rate is highest, considering you can only get paid Google Play applications in 31 countries, and then, often only with a credit card (which many people outside of the US don't have and/or use). It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if those piracy rates mostly come from places without paid applications support and/or with lousy payment options. In any case, Google needs to get its act together with the Play Store.

How about company owners?

Who would like to get a proper receipt/invoice for tax deduction purposes. Lack of thereof makes Google Play a no go for any kind of professional purchases.

The article is about a 99 cent game.
The store is called Google Play.

What makes you think this has anything to do with "company owners"

Play or not, there a lot of $50 pro apps in there.
Apparently developers disagree with you.
