I'm pretty sure most of you already must be quite familiar with CyanogenMod for those of you who aren't, it is an aftermarket distribution of Android for various devices, in short its a customized version of Android for various devices.

India is first Asian country to undertake a mission to Mars! And also 4 in the world. The second orbit raising manoeuvre had been completed.

Screw musixmatch.... Apollo all the way!
 
I've been in contact with Max, the CEO of musiXmatch, and he has made the legitimate request that I ask you to stop spamming the musiXmatch app comments and accusing them of being patent/copyright trolls. I never asked any of you to do those things, and I don't think that I can tell anyone to not do them. But I would appreciate it if those of you who are planning to do so would instead oblige Max's request. I'm not, however, asking you to do this to defend musiXmatch. They've handled this situation questionably, at best. I'm asking you to stop because I feel for the position they're in right now, and I don't think that retribution is going to make this better for anyone.

But that said, I'm making this request after being given the ultimatum of doing so or not receiving any help from musiXmatch in having Apollo reinstated. So, here's where things have gone since I've contacted them: I have musiXmatch trying to push changes to my open source music app that would integrate it with their for-profit service. I have musiXmatch threatening to file complaints with Google against me or my app (It wasn't clear which) because of the spam in the Play Store. And I have musiXmatch trying to coerce me into saving them from you. It's hard to trust what someone says when it's clear that they're only talking to you because they need something or want to use you. Max has been somewhat polite and did offer to let me use their API or SDK for free, but I doubt that same offer was extended to everyone who has been in my situation. Although, it would be more disturbing if it had been. All I've asked is that musiXmatch help me get my apps back in the Play Store without lyrics fetching support. I don't know if this is even something that they can help with, but it's not something they'll discuss without their demands being met.

Max is careful to note that Apollo was removed as the result of an automatic process involving his legal department, which he knows nothing about. How the founder and CEO of a company can shirk responsibility for one of his company's policies is a question in itself. But his attempt to distance himself from what happened still doesn't change the fact that musiXmatch uses an automated process that can result in legitimate apps being suspended from the Play Store. I don't know yet if that's what happened with my apps, but this situation could have been resolved in an hour with two emails and a few sentences. Instead, musiXmatch uses a blind service to weed out possible offenders so that they can be sure to squash them all, and then relies on Google to correct their misfires. Max indicated that they determine whether an app should be targeted for a DMCA claim based at least in part on whether the app attributes its lyrics fetching to a particular source in its description. What they don't do to determine whether an app should be targeted for a DMCA claim is ask someone who could tell them. Max let me know that they make between 200-300 of these DMCA claims per day, but it hardly seems like an imposition to ask for an email first. That might have been a bit simpler, I think, and it would certainly allow musiXmatch to take at least some responsibility for how their actions, automated or not, affect other developers.

So, right now all I can do is wait for Google to review my counterclaim. I can't reupload the apks to the Play Store without lyrics support until they're reinstated. But I am working on the next update, and it is going to make it out one way or another.
