Apple bans Wikileaks i-phone app

December, 2010

Apple has removed an application that lets iPhone and iPad owners browse the WikiLeaks archive from its App Store.

Apple states:

The first on personal attacks: “Any app that is defamatory, offensive, mean-spirited, or likely to place the targeted individual or group in harms way will be rejected.”

The second says “apps must comply with all legal requirements in any location where they are made available to users”.

Of course, none, I repeat none of the leaks or those who have published the leaks have broken any law or been prosecuted thus one must assume that as with Paypal, Visa, Mastercard, Amazon et al, it’s the wrong arm of the US government that has instigated this.
