Apple sends DCMA to website selling access to iOS 6
The next version of the iOS which is iOS 6 has yet to be released. The only people that so far have access to it are developers that have paid $99 for the Apple developer registration. However, it seems that some of these developers are selling the access to the iOS 6 to other people as well. They make use of the limit of 100 unique device IDs (UDID) that they can activate with their developer account.
Some of these developers have created websites where they can sell a few of the 100 UDID allocated to them. These are often sold at a price between $8 to $10. In fact, some of these developers are so successful that one of them claimed that they made $75,000 easily since last June when the first beta version of iOS 6 was made available to the developers. To tackle this problem, Apple decided to send DCMA notices to all of the websites that are selling access to iOS 6.
As a result, a lot of these websites have been taken down by their hosting companies. However, one of the website’s owners mentioned that he will set up a new one with a secure line to Apple as well.
