So the company has been pushing Apple to adjust the 70/30 revenue
split in its developer license agreement. Predictably, Apple has
refused to comply. It’s not yet clear what sort of concession
Microsoft is seeking, but whatever it is, Apple’s evidently not
willing to consider it. Indeed, I’m told it has taken a “the rules
are the rules” stance, which would suggest it’s not at all willing
to negotiate a different split. Apple’s position: If a customer
comes through its gateway, it feels it is deserved the commission
outlined in 11.12 of its developer license.
Good luck with that, Microsoft.
