    Actually, no. Some people have claimed that having it available through the App Store was a violation of the GPL, but there was no actual lawsuit, and there is no direct legal precedent available relevant to it’s status.

    You don’t need a lawsuit for something to be against a license. The agreement existed, it was presented to Apple and they pulled the app. No court needed for that. The developer balked cause they thought it could be free and it was in the clear, but cost wasn’t the only issue.

    I had it for a while but lost my copy in a hard drive crash. I would welcome a return

    VLC is a great app but what about AV Player? It’s played everything on my iPhone that vlc plays on my mac. Great for finishing a TV series on the run!
