EU Regulators Decide Apple Has Been Scared Straight

The easing of Apple’s restrictions on iOS development tools has won the company some good will abroad. In light of the change in policy, the European Union has closed its investigation into an Apple restriction on interpreted code that prevented developers from using tools that could easily make their apps available on multiple platforms.

It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
