Daca voi il vreti, Apple va vrea… cu totu’

Pana sa citesc articolul asta (merci Stefan!), aveam o pozitie relativ neutra, obiectiva despre Apple, design frumos, totul intuitiv, cateva parctici urate de marketing, dar in limitele nesimteniei zilelor noastre.

Ei bine chestia asta, depaseste orice limita a bunului simt si drept urmare politica Apple in materie de EULA este pentru mine, de acum inainte, declarata cea mai infecta dintre cele pe care le cunosc.

Pe scurt nu poti sa faci ce vrei cu munca ta realizata cu unealta iBook Authors Programme. Apple decide ce sa faci cu ea cum si daca poti sa o comercializezi fara sa-si asume nimic. Cu alte cuvinte Apple nu are drepturi doar asupra softului, ci si asupra output-ului softului.

Sa spicuim pe text cateva din doleantele Apple catre userii lor, catre cei care le cumpara si le folosesc produsele cu atata patos, sectiunea 2B din licenta pentru end-useri:

B. Distribution of your Work. As a condition of this License and provided you are in compliance with its terms, your Work may be distributed as follows:

  •  (i) if your Work is provided for free (at no charge), you may distribute the Work by any available means;
  • (ii) if your Work is provided for a fee (including as part of any subscription-based product or
    service), you may only distribute the Work through Apple and such distribution is subject to the following limitations and conditions: (a) you will be required to enter into a separate written agreement with Apple (or an Apple affiliate or subsidiary) before any commercial distribution of your Work may take place; and (b) Apple may determine for any reason and in its sole discretion not to select your Work for distribution.
Ba mai mult:
Apple will not be responsible for any costs, expenses, damages, losses (including without limitation lost business opportunities or lost profits) or other liabilities you mayincur as a result of your use of this Apple Software, including without limitation the fact that your Work may not be selected for distribution by Apple.
