apple sters telegram appstore

Saptamana trecuta aplicatia Telegram a fost stearsa din AppStore de catre compania Apple, disparitia sa lasand o lume intreaga cu foarte multe semne de intrebare privitoare la problema. Compania Apple i-a explicat CEO-ului Telegram, ca aplicatia a fost stearsa din AppStore din cauza unor probleme generate de transmiterea de continut neadecvat.

Ei bine astazi vicepresedintele diviziei de marketing din cadrul Apple, Phil Schiller, a afirmat ca aplicatia Telegram a fost stearsa din AppStore deoarece era folosita pentru a distribui pornografie infantila. Compania Apple are o politica extrem de stricta in ceea ce priveste distribuirea acestui tip de continut prin intermediul aplicatiilor disponibile in AppStore.

Apple a notificat deasemenea autoritatile din SUA cu privire la continutul descoperit in cadrul aplicatiei, iar cei de la Telegram vor trebui sa ofere informatii de identificare. Aplciatia Telegram a fost stearsa din AppStore timp de cateva ore, iar dupa ce Apple a verificat ca problema a fost rezolvata, aplicatia a fost republicata in magazin.

Politica celor de la Apple cu privire la continutul afisat in aplicatii nu ar trebui sa surprinda, compania americana stergand in trecut si aplicatii cu continut pornografic adult, Steve Jobs fiind ferm impotriva lor.

“The Telegram apps were taken down off the App Store because the App Store team was alerted to illegal content, specifically child pornography, in the apps. After verifying the existence of the illegal content the team took the apps down from the store, alerted the developer, and notified the proper authorities, including the NCMEC (National Center for Missing and Exploited Children).

The App Store team worked with the developer to have them remove this illegal content from the apps and ban the users who posted this horrible content. Only after it was verified that the developer had taken these actions and put in place more controls to keep this illegal activity from happening again were these apps reinstated on the App Store.

We will never allow illegal content to be distributed by apps in the App Store and we will take swift action whenever we learn of such activity. Most of all, we have zero tolerance for any activity that puts children at risk – child pornography is at the top of the list of what must never occur. It is evil, illegal, and immoral.

I hope you appreciate the importance of our actions to not distribute apps on the App Store while they contain illegal content and to take swift action against anyone and any app involved in content that puts children at risk.”
