Ha! Developer Allen Leung made an App for the iphone called “Hottest Girls”..It was for sale in the App’s store for a while but once apple found out it featured topless women, they quickly snatched it from the site then released this statement.

“Apple will not distribute applications that contain inappropriate content, such as pornography.

The developer of this application added inappropriate content directly from their server after the application had been approved and distributed, and after the developer had subsequently been asked to remove some offensive content. This was a direct violation of the terms of the iPhone Developer Program. The application is no longer available on the App Store.”

Oh hell f*ckin’ no! This would give Law Officials the right to snoop thru your computer; no questions asked! Imagine having your door kicked in for downloading music, or being arrested for having too many songs in your library..This law itself should be against the law! It’s an invasion of privacy..If anything this will just trigger a negitive response from the real owners of the internet..The Hackers, Programmers, & Security Administrators.
