Freedom of App-spression
Friday, May 27, 2011
KG Dogfighting is an Android app that allows users train and fight their virtual dogs. Several groups have asked Google to ban the game. But Android’s relatively liberal content policy gives its customers the freedom to choose. You won’t find KG Dogfighting or anything like it in the Apple App Store which maintains much tighter control over what you can download onto your iPhone. Too much control, according to The Berkman Center's Jonathan Zittrain.
