Apple steps up legal action against pirated iOS application repositories

Cult of Mac

We all know that Apple doesn’t like jailbreaks at all. Unlocking iOS devices is defended by many by putting the highest customization possibilities as an argument, but it also gives free way to piracy of App Store applications. It seems that Cupertino is already tired, and has started to take legal action against services offering pirated iOS applications .

Apptrackr, one of the pirate application repositories that can be accessed after applying the jailbreak, has started receiving legal letters from Apple with demands to shut down the service. The reaction of Apptrackr has been to move to servers in other countries , in order to circumvent these demands. It has worked, but the additional costs of hosting have forced Apptrackr to now display ads in its interface.

We do not know if Apple will go further with its measures to curb piracy, but for the moment it has managed to corner one of the responsible repositories. However, it remains to be seen if the measures they have taken in AppTrackr (whose managers have already informed users of the situation through Installous) and their plans to spread to more servers will represent more complications for Apple to continue defending its business.
