Reminds me of that student who sued Amazon for remotely baleeting Nineteen Eighty Four from his Kindle due to some copyright issue. If it had been a hard copy of a physical book they wouldn't have been able to take it back, same applies here.
"For legal reasons..." El-oh-el, I can see where that's going.
Yeah, I can see where you're coming from. However, I can also see the good in this. When you buy something from the Windows Store and it turns out that it's chock full of malicious code that you don't know about, but Microsoft finds out about it, they go ahead and remove it (however, they don't have to tell you). I can also see people getting pissed off at not being told about it, nor why it was done without contacting Microsoft support... Though, both Google and Apple do this, and you really don't hear much about it from their users, outside of the occasional app being removed from the Apple store that makes headlines.
Though, I didn't read anywhere in there about whether or not Microsoft would refund your money for it. I really hope that's the case, otherwise... I'll just not buy anything from the Windows Store =V

Ahh... I'd read an article that stated that Google and Apple both remove the infected app from your device if they find out about it... I'll have to find the article (I'm at work right now, though). Though, I admit, I could have just read it wrong.
