.... once posted on the internet, some things will stay there indefinitely.
Take for instance the "Talking Baby Owl" and the "Talking John" apps on iTunes. It's been almost a year since I contacted both the developer of this app and Apple themselves to demand that this app be taken of the iTunes store as it infringed my copyright of my baby owl "Nascha". This was immediately acted on, but although I don't see it in the iTunes store anymore, there are still numerous advertising this app! Just one of them is here:
Best iPhone apps at AppStoreHQ
Apparently, once something is added to iTunes, numerous websites will automatically show advertisement which is "out of the control" of either Apple or the developer.
So I decided that rather than get all worked up about it and hitting my head on numerous brick walls, I'll use it for advertising. By referring to the above link on my blog, AppStore will use this blog post as a review.
If you enjoyed seeing the photo of this baby owl, which is a one-of-a-kind soft sculpture by me, you are invited to see more of my work at www.melisas-bears-com.
If you would like to use any of my artwork in an app, I would be interested in working with developers, but request that I be contacted and that details be worked out first.
Have a beautiful day,
