Update to Yesterday’s Post on the Appeals Court Granting Apple a Stay on the App Store In-App Purchasing Injunction

Here’s a paragraph I just added to yesterday’s piece:

There are a lot of people who really wanted this injunction to stick, under the premise that it would force Apple to open the App Store to third-party in-app purchasing for digital content without Apple taking any cut whatsoever, exactly as Apple has done all along for in-app purchasing of physical goods. That was never going to be the case, even if this injunction had gone into effect. What was the point of the injunction then? you might ask. Good question.
