PSA: Android Market DDA updated; developers need to log in

A PSA for all you application developers out there: Google has updated the Android Market Developer Distribution Agreement "in preparation for some work we’re doing on introducing new payment options, which we think developers will like." Here's what's been added, though damned if we understand it.

  • In Section 13.1, “authorized carriers” have been added as an indemnified party.
  • Section 13.2 is new in its entirety, covering indemnity for payment processors for claims related to tax accrual.

Anyhoo, if you're a registered developer, you need to log into the developer console (opens in new tab) within 30 days of today to accept the new agreement, so get to clicking. [Google Developer Blog]

  • Perhaps this will allow certain developers in those places of the world not supported by Googles market and have to resort to other means of purchasing apps (looking at you LauncherProPlus) to officially use the app market place now?
