Changes to the developer agreement may signal a new means of paying for apps in Google's mobile OS.
On Friday, Internet legend Tim Bray announced on the Android developer blog big changes to the Android Market Developer Distribution Agreement (DDA):
Please note that we have updated the Android Market Developer Distribution Agreement (DDA). This is in preparation for some work we're doing on introducing new payment options, which we think developers will like.
In the spirit of transparency, we wanted to highlight the changes:
- In Section 13.1, "authorized carriers" have been added as an indemnified party.
