VLC Gets Removed From The Apple App Store
Movie media player software VLC has been removed from the Apple App Store. Apple did not consider removing it until a lead contributor to the VLC project and Nokia employee Rémi Denis-Courmont complained that the app was violating a GNU public license (GPL). Apple App Store downloads have DRM applied to them, which violates the GPL. VideoLAN, the group that created the desktop version of VLC did not have anything to do with the media player getting removed.
