Apple, it seems, is rethinking its position regarding an on-line cartoonist/animator:
... On Monday Mark Fiore became the first online-only cartoonist to win a Pulitzer, for weekly animated videos published on SFGate.com, the Web site of The San Francisco Chronicle. In a subsequent interview with the Nieman Journalism Lab, he recalled that Apple had rejected his iPhone application in December since it included cartoons that mocked public figures. ...
... After Mr. Fiore received the Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning — and after he mentioned his app’s rejection in an article published on niemanlab.org on Thursday — he was encouraged by Apple to resubmit it. Mr. Fiore did so on Friday morning and is awaiting a response.
Nothing like a a high-profile award ... coupled with some adverse publicity ... to change hearts and minds.
Like we always say: "There is no 'fair' or 'unfair', but only the amount of leverage you possess." And it would appear that Mr. Fiore, now that he owns a Pulitzer, might have sufficient leverage for his app.
