    Default Apple Failing to Pay, Devs Threatening Lawsuit
    Apple needs to re-evaluate their payment process to App Store devs. Apple has been paying late and more recently the numbers of devs that are not getting paid at all is on the rise. According to Apple's contract with iPhone developers who are selling their apps on the App Store

    Upon collection of any amounts from any end-user as the price for any Licensed Application
    delivered to that end-user hereunder, Apple shall deduct the full amount of its commission with respect to that Licensed Application, and any taxes collected by Apple under Section 3.2 hereof, and shall remit to You, or issue a credit in Your favor, as the case may be, the remainder of those prices on a monthly basis, no later than forty-five (45) days following the close of the month in which that amount was received by Apple. Each remittance by Apple under this Section 3.5 shall be accompanied by a sales report in sufficient detail to permit You to verify the accuracy and completeness of the amount remitted by Apple. You hereby acknowledge and agree that Apple shall be entitled to a commission, in accordance with this Section 3.5 on the delivery of any Licensed Application to any end-user, even if Apple is unable to collect the price for that Licensed Application from that end-user . . .
    Many developers have started actively discussing these issues on the iphonedevsdk forums and it appears that Apple's failure to hold up their end of the bargain and pay is fairly wide spread. It is not clear yet whether any or all of these developers will follow things all the way through and file a lawsuit against Apple but one thing is for certain: Apple needs to get their act together and make things good with the developers creating applications that make Apple the big $$$$$$$.

    And we thought Apple was any different than Microsoft...I guess when you get popular it gives the right to play the D-Bag card...I would be pissed as well...Good luck to them..

    When they realized just how big the App Store was going to get after the first couple months they should have hired sufficient staff in their accounting dept to make sure everything got paid on time. They are most likely just so buried in paperwork they can't keep up.

    I know people who work for Apple and they are a great company. Great pay scale, awesome fringe benefits, happy working environment. I saw the blueprints for a corporate office the built here in Austin and it was sweet!

    lol xD
    Anyway, I would never have expected something like that from Apple.
    If it was me, i would have paid everyone on a set date i.e. 1st day of every month or every three months or what ever.
    That way they could have coded something which wouldnt need "humans" to take care of this crap.
    Damn. :/

    well, after reading this, I am not so sure I would...

    I do find it silly that people are saying things like "I can't believe this... from Apple?" People, Apple isn't God, it is another company with its own agendas and shortcomings. Way too many people have idolized this company. It really needs to stop.
