Apple rejects iPhone book due to objectionable content
The word is Apple has banned a book from the Apple iTunes App Store, the reason for the ban being the language content. The book was written an editor at Cnet, one David Carnoy, and it had been hope it would make it to the Apple iPhone.
Knife Music by Carnoy has already been published via Amazon and has been the recipient of praise. Knife Music was then submitted for approval for the Apple iPhone App Store and would have been released to the Apple iPhone via TouchBooks Reader software.
However, due to Apple policy, Knife Music failed to get approval due to it contained “objectionable content,” which means the content was considered pornographic, obscene, defamatory, offensive or other.
Personally my view is it is the 21st Century and individuals should be allowed to censor their own reading material.
