Against Apple? Who should we be cheering for? Microsoft? Google? Nokia?

VideoLan must have known how the Apple app store worked before they ported VLC to iOS, right? So why did they do the work just to ask that it be removed? I'm confused...

VLC Said NO Such Thing.

It was a Developer that had wrote a small piece of code in VLC like many other hundreds of other developers have that had lodged a complaint.
Also this person that lodged the compliant works for Nokia also so put 2 and 2 together and stop link baiting your articles.

The Full Support of all the other VLC Developers Approve this Application only (1) doesn't and that is the one that also is employed with Nokia.

That should be your story.
