There are three types of intellectual property licenses under the licensing agreement. The vast majority of App Store developers who sell digital goods and services qualify for the Small Business Program. I`m not sure you`ll really have to search the content with each new update looking for changes. In this case, it may be enough to rely on the different sources of information, as they tend to highlight only the important changes (or rather the most important changes). As a general rule, the changes are minor and do not deserve to be mentioned. But if Apple makes significant changes, places like MacStories, 9to5Mac, MacRumors and Daring Fireball (among others) will include them. In the past, even the FER has kept articles on the licensing agreement. We believe that small businesses are the backbone of our global economy and the heart of innovation and opportunity in communities around the world. With its launch on January 1, 2021, the industry-leading New Small Business App Store program aims to accelerate innovation and advance your small business. The program has a 15% reduced commission rate on paid apps and in-app purchases, allowing you to invest more resources in your business and continue to create the kind of quality apps your customers love. Apple`s App Store has created the marketplace for the modern app and, in many ways, it`s still defined. With users downloading more than 7.8 million apps a day, distributing your product through this online store can give you instant access to consumers around the world. However, as a cursory review of the licensing agreement shows, Apple retains control of each product offered on the App Store.
Such a check is the entrance fee for access to Apple`s famous Wall Garden and a price that more than 9 million developers were willing to pay. In addition, iOS 14, iPadOS 14 and tvOS 14 apps are required to obtain user permission, to track users via other companies` apps or websites, or to access the device`s ad ID. We are committed to ensuring that users can choose whether or not they can follow an application. To give developers time to make the necessary changes, apps must get permission to track users from the beginning of next year. More information, including an update to the App Store`s review policies, will follow this fall. Apple has extremely extensive repair rights under the licensing agreement. When a developer accepts this agreement, it agrees to grant unlimited compensation for all claims related to the developed application, including, but not only to the developer`s breach of the license agreement, claims that the application violates the intellectual property rights of third parties, and even the authorized use of the app by Apple (including the use of excerpts from the app in advertising).
