Apple's iPhone app developer contract revealed by the EFF

The Electronic Frontier Foundation, which campaigns for freedom of speech and consumers' digital rights, has published Apple's iPhone Developer Program License Agreement. It's a document that isn't usually seen because application developers aren't allowed to talk about it publicly without permission. However, the EFF obtained a copy after making a Freedom of Information Act request after the US government – via NASA – published an iPhone app.

The highlights, according to the EFF, include a ban on making public statements about the terms of the agreement, a ban on using Apple's SDK to create apps that are distributed through non-Apple app stores, a maximum legal liability of $50 in damages and an acceptance that Apple can remotely disable apps at any time.
