Android Developers Form a "Union" with 7 Demands for Google
A bunch of Android developers have formed a "union" to protest against Google's Android Market conditions. There are 7 demands and one of them is the 32% cut that Google takes from an app sale be lowered or renegotiated as they feel that Google doesn't actually do any curating of the Market (besides sending them threatening letters). Well, the demands seem reasonable enough given the context, but let's see what Google has to say about this.
www.andevuni.org - We, the members and supporters of the Android Developers Union, are fed up with the conditions of the Android Market. We are tired of being treated like sharecroppers on Google's digital plantation! We have compiled a list of seven demands which Google can implement to improve the Market. Implementing these demands will absolutely improve the working conditions for Android developers, thereby improving the Android ecosystem and giving a better experience to our customers.
