Adobe backpedals on App Store royalty demands for Director 12
Adobe has backpedaled on its <A href="http://www.macnn.com/articles/13/02/13/amount.comes.over.and.above.app.store.revenue.spli t/">royalty program</a> for App Store titles created using the company's Director 12 publishing utility. The previous licensing agreement forced developers to pay Adobe a 10-percent cut of all App Store earnings over $20,000 for apps created or published through Director 12.<br />
<br />
The royalty demands have been criticized by developers, who already forfeit to Apple 30 percent of revenue from app sales and in-app purchases. The extra fees were viewed as a potential hurdle to establishing profitability for many smaller-scale developers, and a reason for developers to choose publishing tools that do not demand royalties.<br />
<br />
"Since launching Director 12 in February, Adobe conducted detailed conversations with members of the community to understand concerns with the licensing model," Adobe said in a statement to <em>9to5Mac</em>. "After analyzing all viewpoints, we decided to allow users to publish to iOS without registration or royalty fees on earned income."<br />
<br />
Adobe's Director 12 website still says "Additional Fees Apply," however the website is expected to be changed to follow the revised licensing agreement.
