I think the lesson here is never build a business on another companies platform unless you have rock solid licenses guaranteeing they won't change the rules like this. Same thing for Twitter or Facebook. They can put you out of business if they choose to and it's not wise to give another company a kill switch for your investment.

Following your advice no one could develop anything for iOS. Or Android. Or WebOS. Or any other computing platform. Every platforms vendor could change the rules your depends on.

Or in any legal system (see another of today's posts re changing the rules of online money transmissions in California).
