Android's remote kill switch for rogue apps
Computer World has posted a piece on the details.
The important point, I suppose, is that in the event of a “recall” of a rogue app that had to be purchased, Google will try to recover the purchase fees from the developer. If they can’t recover all of the fees, the money they do manage to recover will be split among those impacted.
With a far more open system, the Android Market seems much more at risk for such issues than Apple’s iPhone store.
