The Google accounting department has been busy this week dictating how internet users control their online experience when surfing the web from an Android device. Google removed two apps from its Play store that block web advertisements and protect privacy, citing that they violated section 4.4 of the developer distribution agreement. The two affected apps are Adblock Plus and AdAway.
Section 4.4 of the developer distribution agreement states:
You agree that you will not engage in any activity with the Market, including the development or distribution of Products, that interferes with, disrupts, damages, or accesses in an unauthorised manner the devices, servers, networks, or other properties or services of any third party including, but not limited to, Android users, Google or any mobile network operator.
