According to him, Apple makes it their business to legalize every sale as they are the third-party vendor, and buy Buying any Plat from Apple you are tacitly stating that you have knowledge of the original ToS you signed with the company actually owning the virtual goods.
So everytime you buy Plat, it's another re-sign of the ToS, and when you would be asked "ok your niece didn't know and signed it, but you continually bought and continually signed that you had knowledge of the ToS. And your niece couldn't set up an Apple ID and put a credit card on it, or iTunes card, so those payments were in fact supplied and supported by you...and thus your tacit approval of a One Thumb ToS. If you didn't know what that ToS was..everytime you bought Plat you were saying that you did. So then they catch you in a cyber-falsity.
It's a bunch of total BS. Obviously, Apple pays lawyers millions to hammer out the best catch-all defenses..but the niece-defense is one that they woulda conquered quickly and they did it with Apple's ToS and using Apple as a third party vendor on all subsequent sales. So Apple gets it's money and so does One Thumb as an extension as the virtual owner.
I know that probably the only people who give a crap about this are me and D0nk0 so I will shut up.
In terms of the topic at hand, we have gone thru 12 pages of passionate barbs, debates and a wide range of topics, I think more or less each side has a point. But I think going thru the next approx 7 days and using your items how you see fit, and then popping over to the new system is what's gonna happen. We can re-convene to see what people think about it in practice, not in theory later.
A well made point as ever, do you know the one company I really despise: Apple! Get that for irony!
But yes, I'm sure hoping the new system will allow for more fun, but only a few short days will tell.
