Is Apple Censorship and Rejection of Apps Going Too Far?

You are probably aware of Apple’s stance of “adult material” being included in applications in their App Store. Apple has basically purged all what they deem as “objectionable content” from their store and have a rigorous acceptance system in place.

But do Apple over step the mark when it comes to censorship and rejections? Maybe so, as according to an article over on Techradar, Apple rejected an application due to it showing a picture of America’s Next Top Model, Lyudmila Bouzinova.

Apparently DLP Mobile submitted their “Mirror App” which was rejected by Apple because of the Lyudmila Bouzinova, image and were told by Apple that the included shots of Lyudmila Bouzinova were “obscene, pornographic, and defamatory.”

Strong words to describe the rejected image which you can see about don’t you think? Personally I see nothing wrong with the picture, unless showing a naked shoulder is classified as pornographic by Apple. Apparently though, once the Lyudmila Bouzinova image was removed from the App, Apple allowed it into their App Store.

So what do you think readers, is Apple taking censorship and rejection of apps a little too far?

    Absolutely frigging ridiculous, what is this this the 1930's. The last time I checked we lived in a free and democratic society. Apple must be run by bunch religous zealots.

    It's their phone they can do what they want and the consumer knows this. BUT, do they want to end up in the same situation as they did with Microsoft? Doesn't bother me, I'll go with the better product which won't be them.

    Fascist-Dictator jobs thinks he is the Morality Police, therefore he is going to look at all the suspect porno and keep it to himself. His body has rejected his mind and not the used liver he got.

    Just as long as the i-customers don't this position will change someday, somehow. That would be like buying a house near a farm, and later complain that it smells bad. The only solution is to mooooooove.
