Apple Rejects iPhone BitTorrent App

Citing copyright infringement concerns, Apple won・t include a BitTorrent client in the App Store.

The Cupertino-based electronics company rejected Maza Digital・s Drivetrain, saying :this category of applications is often used for the purpose of infringing third-party rights. We have chosen to not publish this type of application to the App Store.;

Apple is well known for banning porn-related apps or those it deems culturally unworthy. That said, the latest rejection is rather ironic: iPhones, iPods and even Apple computers nd those from its competitors are routinely used :for the purpose of infringing third-party rights.; And there already is at least one app available, called trackr, which is described as :an RSS reader with the unique ability to queue to torrent downloads diectly from an RSS feed.;
