It is time for Round 3 of the battle over Amazon’s App Store for Android and the Developer Agreement that everyone signs when registering to submit games (or apps) onto the App Store. In response to Amazon’s clarification regarding the Developer Agreement last week, the IGDA has pointed out that there is still a glaring issue at hand.
Yesterday the IGDA (International Game Developers Association) published an open letter on their blog to Amazon’s App Store and warning developers about Amazon’s Developer Agreements terms and what you are actually agreeing to when you sign it. Today Amazon has published a response to the letter.
We should be surprised by this but we are not. Perhaps it is the few conversations I’ve has with Cory Trese, developer of Star Traders RPG over the Amazon’s terms of agreement for their App Store for Android. In short, the IGDA (International Game Developers Association) has issues an open-letter warning game developers about the terms of agreement.
