Re: Apple can't be responsible for every app in its store
Not necesarrily. It depends what Apple is here. Is the App-Store a shop or is Apple an agent?
If i go into a shop then the sales contract is between me and the shop. Product defective? I go to the shop, not the producer.
If i go to a insurance agent he gets a comission, but the contract is between me and the insurance company. Got a problem? I go to the insurance company.
With Google its clear, Google is an agent, the dev has a direct customer relationship.
Apple on the other hand wants the benefits of both models. Keeping all customer data for itself like a shop but if there is a problem send the responsibility to the dev. Cant blame Apple for trying, but i doubt this is going to stand up in court.
So its either, Apple is a shop, then they get sued (and can in response sue the dev), or Apple is an agent, then the problem is with the dev.
