Actually, as has been stated many times, the issue is that for all the bitching and moaning about the Apple approval process, the rules are actually quite permissive for developers, especially compared to console makers. Except in very limited cases, Apple doesn't touch copyright and trademark issues, letting the rights holders take the lead in starting the removal process. And developers can change their app description and screenshots at any time after the app is approved -- you can be sure that what this jerk submitted to Apple originally matched the content of the actual game.
Ask any developer here whether they want to go through an approval process whenever they change their marketing, or if they want Apple to run thorough trademark and copyright checks on everything they submit. I bet you most would say no way.
Unfortunately, that means that we are stuck with a system that is easily exploitable by scammers and criminals. We need to be vigilant, but also Apple needs to be more responsive to user complaints -- some of these scam apps have remained in the store for months.
