Apple's upcoming iOS9 News app gets publishers angry
The BBC is reporting that a number of publications have received an email from Apple regarding the news app that will debut in iOS 9 later in the year. This email, according to the reports, includes various terms under which Apple would repurpose the publications’ news content. The publications aren’t happy about it, though.
I discuss Apple’s proposed “opt-out from acceptance” method for creating a binding contract and why that isn’t legally sound. This issue provides a good lesson for website and app developers about how to create a contract between the user and the service provider.
