Last year Indian study Wolfire Games released the code for its game platform as Open Source Lugaru yet despite being victims of piracy alebo, but encouraged by the success of Humble Indie Bundle (5 games for the price seemed to give you) and the conviction that they should make more games for Linux and Mac OS X.
Earlier this year, Apple launched its digital distribution platform for Mac OS X applications known as Mac App Store and quickly popular free and paid software. Wolfire Games was also quick to launch HD Lugaru U $ S 9.99. But so did the usual opportunists, who managed to publish in the App Store Open Source version of Lugaru charging $ 0.99 for it.
Recall that Lugaru Open Source is available under the GPLv2 license in this repository, but its visual art was not explicitly covered by it.
The most unfortunate event is not just the fact of the criminality of the action, but it has been possible to circumvent the strict controls of approval from Apple, which for example prevented Sony published in the same App Store software for reading your e- books (probably free).
