Remember the controversy over the UK’s Elite Systems last week? Its the company that had a successful Kickstarter run to make a bluetooth accessory that would turn an iPad into a clone of the Sinclair ZX Spectrum gaming computer.
It turned out that they hadn’t paid any of the game developers whose work they were publishing on the iOS App Store in months. Now, according to Ars Technica, Elite Systems is looking to make right:
Now, in an open letter to the community, Elite Director Steve Wilcox says he has withdrawn all of his company’s ZX Spectrum apps from the iOS App Store as he takes steps to contact all the developers involved and to nail down the rights and royalties situation.
Funny how people will do the right thing when a portion of the planet’s population starts shaming them in public.
