I hope you'll update that to be consistent with the App World Agreement, which among other things states "The Application EULA shall at a minimum include provisions excluding RIM ... from any liability whatsoever ... and shall make RIM... [a beneficiary] to the Application EULA in respect of these provisions".

 

I think of legal documents such as License Agreements as pieces of software.  They are executed by the legal system (courts, etc).  You (or the author of them, preferably a lawyer) are the programmer.  Unless you're an expert in the programming language used (i.e. legalese), your software will have bugs -- bugs which will result in the software not working, perhaps even being counterproductive.  Hackers (i.e. lawyers not paid by you) have full access to the source code and can study it to find all the bugs (loopholes). 

 

In such a case, you may be better off having no EULA at all than one riddled with bugs.

BlackBerry App World™ financial reporting credentials from Digital River

Has anyone else received an email list this?

 

***BlackBerry App World™ notification ***  

Dear ***********,

BlackBerry App World™ is now live.  You receive this email as a vendor of the BlackBerry App World™ who has agreed to terms presented from both RIM and Digital River on the BlackBerry App World™ vendor portal and has submitted at least one application.  Digital River as the merchant of record for BlackBerry App World™ has created an account for you to access your financial reports. Please see below for further instructions on how to access your new account.

Please note, this email notification does not reflect approval of the application you have submitted as a BlackBerry App World™ vendor. A separate email communication will be sent to you to indicate the final status of the application you have submitted. Please continue to watch your inbox for any additional updates and instructions as we move forward toward launch. 

Your Digital River financial reporting account credentials are as follows:

User Name: *******
Password: *********

John, I haven't, but then I haven't submitted an app yet.  But are you concerned by something in it, or surprised? 

 

When you (and I) first registered, one of the checkboxes led to us accepting a Vendor Agreement with Digital River, which I guess is one of the initial "Merchants of Record" (aka MoR, from the App World Agreement).  I suppose your app will be sold through their "kiosk", or something like that.

Re: Anyone have their App approved?

I haven't received that email, yet, we will see when it comes in for me. I hope to hear about my app status soon. I really need to finish up a few more apps and get them submitted so I am not relying on just one submital. I am working on a few others, but not as quickly as I had hoped.

Not concerned.  I logged in with the credentials supplied and they have information that would only be known by BB from our original submission.  It seems to be credible, more surprised and hopeful that the process is moving along.

The other reason why I posted and asked is that the email got stuck in my spam folder, so everyone should keep an eye on that too.
