Apple Now Making it Easier to Report Infringing iOS Content

Apple is now providing a website that makes it possible for content owners to report infringing applications for removal from the App Store.

It’s a site called iTunes Content Dispute, and they will take a look at any applications that infringe on another party’s work. Here’s what Apple’s iTunes Content Dispute site reads:

 If you believe that an application available in the App Store violates your intellectual property rights, you can use this form to submit a claim to the App Store Legal Team. If you are looking for the form to submit a claim for any other type of content available on the iTunes Store, please visit here.

Apps on the App Store are made available by third party providers. Once you have identified the app and described the alleged infringement on the following pages, we will respond via email with a reference number and will put you in direct contact with the provider of the disputed app. Any further contact with the App Store Legal team should be made via email and should include the reference number in the subject line.

That definitely makes it a bit easier for people to report infringing content.
