    We could use that here!

    So if I was in Taiwan, I could return FCPX and get my $300 back. Sounds good to me.

    I have to disagree with you. Apple loathes having multiple sets of rules, especially when a forced change can make them look like good guys. I think they will spread it to everywhere. However I think that they might tighten the reigns. Make it more like 3 days, except where longer is required by law.

    I thought the Google Market place already had a return policy?

    I was going to write a semi-snide comment about doing a little research before buying (especially in light of comments made in the trade press before the release of FCP X), but realized that I agree with you.

    Yeah, that’s actually the way it should be — and probably will.

    Virginia also has a 3-day consumer purchase return law.  I wonder if it could be applied in the same fashion?

    This is a bad policy for digital goods of such low value.  

    Another example of trying to make the laws for physical retail appear to be relevant in online situations when they totally aren’t.  If this law was in effect in Europe and the US, it would effectively destroy most small developers.

    Please stop being a colossal jackass and advertising your lame blog here.  You’ve been doing it for weeks.  You don’t even make comments, you just advertise.  

    Here’s hoping the mods ban you for it (polite spam is still spam), but even if they don’t, try behaving in a moral fashion anyway.  You may find that being a decent human is it’s own reward.
