Apple Removes VLC Media Player from the App Store

As I told you that there were a licensing issue between the developer of the open-source VLC platform and the developer of the VLC iOS application. Now Apple has pulled the application out the App Store. One of the developers of VLC for iOS has announced that on their blog:

At last, Apple has removed VLC media player from its application store. Thus the incompatibility between the GNU General Public License and the AppStore terms of use is resolved - the hard way. I am not going to pity the owners of iDevices, and not even the MobileVLC developers who doubtless wasted a lot of their time. This end should not have come to a surprise to anyone.

What do you think?
