Unauthorized file-sharing keep increasingly spreading from the desk computers now to smart phones with Google’s Android OS, thus reducing the entertaining industry’s efforts to fight piracy almost to zero.
It actually was only a matter of time that downloading illegal music became available on the powerful smart phones made today. The first devices providing a possibility to get this feat are smart phones running Android OS from Google, considering Apple’s Nazi-like grip on programs. Since it only started, it is sure to be this way for at least some time.
Such applications as MP3 Music, Tunee Music or Music Junk enable users to download music the same way as when using any other common peer-to-peer software. The smart phones bring in the only difference: the user isn’t able to share files, while those downloaded are grabbed from some anonymous place or a third-party server that can be identified.
The users’ comments on these applications prove that the one called Music Junk seems like the best of them. One user-tester was delighted to say that the program managed to find anything he was looking for, with another noting that the application provides much better search results than its online twin.
In fact, Google has developed a policy stipulating the removing of application from the Google Android Market only provided that the software breaks one of the list of conditions, including the following: contains malware; it’s unauthorized; pornographic, obscene; or copyright infringement.
Talking about the P2P software, one should admit it obviously violates the last condition. However, it actually doesn’t matter after the program has been developed and made available online beyond the Android Market.
Once the RIAA was aware of this, it asked Google to delete the application immediately when they emerge. The representative for the RIAA said they are aware of existing of such applications and the similar stuff. He also announced the industry has made Google also aware of software violating their own policy and facilitating unauthorized activity.
In return, Google said that it can’t actively control what kind of software is posted to make the Android Market remains an open channel for promoting mobile programs. So far most of the users chose from those available the Music Junk.
