More App Store fun—this time, it’s IP infringement

So, just to make things clear: a Twitter client is bad, a Nine Inch Nails app is positively evil, eBooks that enable you to access so-called objectionable content will warp your fragile little mind—except when Apple U-turns, possibly due to the stare of evil panda. But an app where you shake a baby is OK, until Apple realises that it isn’t.

However—and this is important—flagrant and blatant IP infringement is apparently fine, judging by Luigi Vs Pac.


And, yeah, we know Apple shouldn’t have to be the IP police when it comes to App Store content, and that some properties being ripped off are somewhat obscure. But, c’mon—Luigi and Pac-Man? In one game? Oh dear.
