From the article on PaidContentUK:
I wondered how long it would be before print media pointed at the BBC’s new smartphone apps plan as another example of expansion in to their commercial territory. The answer: just 24 hours...
The Newspaper Publishers Association, in an emailed statement, says its members believe BBC apps “will undermine the commercial sector’s ability to establish an economic model in an emerging but potentially important market ... This, over the long term, will reduce members’ ability to invest in quality journalism.”
The exceptionally absurd part about this si that the BBC's app is little different from any of the other news gathering app.
