Windows Phone Marketplace Account Notice – IP Violation Warning


A little odd, I received the following email today but have not had any indication of which Apps might be infringing copyright.  Anyone else in the same position?

“This is to inform you that you have more than one Intellectual Property complaint against your account. If we receive one additional Intellectual Property complaint regarding your account, your account may be terminated without further warning.

Note: if your account is terminated, all your applications will be unpublished and not be available to republish.

If you have any questions about the requirements of copyright, trademark or other laws, please consult an attorney.

Windows Phone Store Team”

Is anyone from the Windows Phone team able to comment?  Surely it would be sensible to alert me of any specific complaints before sending what appears to be a generalised notification?

  1. That’s bad, did they not even give you the reason and who filed the complaint?
    The dev’s are kind of at the mercy of these company’s now with the proprietary app stores. I’ve read the horror story’s of how Apple just pulls apps without any reason but I did not think MS were as bad. If you are relying on the app income you could wake up to a nasty shock which is out of your hands.
