Google "I read earlier this week about a developer who made their Android version free after the $1 game was extensively pirated. Stories like this come as no surprise, but the industry press rarely deals with the core problem - and nor does Google. [...] Whilst the aforementioned story about the Android game didn't surprise me, it did horrify me. Android is designed to be difficult to make money from, and the core issue is that it's open - with the corrosive mentality that surrounds such openness."

The discussion of this topic on Slashdot was pretty interesting. Basically the guy couldn't sell the app because is was crap and had some suspicious permission requirements.

Could you provide a reference? I really don't want to read all of that slashdot thread (or slashdot at all, really).
