There’s an uprising taking place in the Google Play Store and it’s aimed at the Google Play Movies app. People (read: savvy users) are pissed at Google for not allowing them to rent or buy videos just because their device is rooted. I myself can see both sides of the story — users want freedom; Google doesn’t want videos to be recorded or downloaded illegally — but it does beg the question of how Google will solve this issue if they do at all.
The total amount of rooted users isn’t likely to be that large, but they’re certainly the vocal minority. So if Google want to see positive ratings, they’re going to have to find some middle ground, or prepare to be voted to the bottom.
