Asia Bizz: The VLC application has been removed from Apple’s App Stores, after there were reports of its licensing issues. The France based multi-format video player is removed from the app store because the news regarding its license has come out to be true. Well Apple has nothing to do with this, but it can be blamed to one person who is apparently behind this, and unfortunately was an employee of Nokia.

Rémi Denis-Courmont has said that VLC has violated GNU’s public license because the App Store had officially purchased this license from them. As of now if one wants to use the application on their Apple device, the people who have downloaded the application before it was removed were the lucky ones.

Finally the whole removal process was done on the basis of GNU’s claims and Apple or VideoLan has nothing to do with it. This has now speculated the issue of the VLC software being open for public. Both companies have not yet commented about the App removal.
