Default Warner Brothers New App Sidestepping New Policy?

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.tuaw.com/2011/02/16/warner-brothers-sells-movies-as-apps-skirts-itunes/' target='_blank'>http://www.tuaw.com/2011/02/16/warn...-skirts-itunes/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"In an interesting move, Warner Brothers has released two movies as apps -- including extras -- semi-skirting the iTunes Store. The idea is to offer movies to customers who live in countries without movie sales via iTunes. Of course, Apple still gets the 30% cut of the in-app purchase cost."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1297888041.usr105634.jpg" style="margin-left: 150px; margin-right: 150px;" /></p><p>The clause this may violate states that 'apps that are simply a song or movie should be submitted to the iTunes store. Apps that are simply a book should be submitted to the iBookstore.' In this case, the movies are in-app purchases so at least they follow that rule. Works over either Wi-Fi or 3G and the cost is $9.99 USD for streaming or $11.99 USD for purchase.&nbsp;</p>
