I believe there's a thing called copyright, right?

I was thinking the same thing, but I wasn't sure if this dev was somehow linked to id or not. The description for this game is the exact same as the one for id's game.

Apple do not play gate keeper for copyright and trademark infringement of things they don't own. They wait for the complaints and takes them down, but don't enforce them themselves in the first instance. They don't have the time to chase up every single trademark for every app submitted.

Like lol, just take a look at this thread http://forums.toucharcade.com/showth...43#post1704443.
The discussion there pretty much sums up everything about app store piracy, apple review team's incompetence etc.

I wish. Apple's legal department has been scrutinizing one of my apps' licensing documentation for nearly 2 months now.

Wolfenstein is open source. Open source licenses typically allow users to customize/modify engine or reproduce games as they see fit. If I am correct in my grasp of open source copyright law there is no infringement. Personally any quality retro FPS fine by me.
