Google pulls all paid apps from Android Market in Taiwan

| June 27, 2011 | Reply

Here in the US, the refund window for paid apps was 24 hours and you could return them. That has not changed to 15 minutes. Over in Taiwan the government didn’t like the idea of 15 minute refund windows and fined Google about $350,000. Google responded by taking every single paid app out of the market in Taiwan.

See, the rule is over in Taiwan anything you buy online must come with a 7 day free trial. If you aren’t happy, you get money back for any reason. This includes app purchases. Google decided at some point they were above the law, ignored it and is now making the people suffer. Who do you think the blame should be on here? Taiwan for its slightly absurd 7 day app return policy, or Google for undermining the government?
