Google Play Developer Program Policies Updated

It looks like Google is trying to cut down on the crap apps in the Google Play marketplace. While some of this seems pretty obvious, we all know that unless it is in black and white, spammers and scammers will try to get away with anything.

Dangerous Products: Don't transmit viruses, worms, defects, Trojan horses, malware, or any other items that may introduce security vulnerabilities to or harm user devices, applications, or personal data. We don't allow content that harms, interferes with the operation of, or accesses in an unauthorized manner, networks, servers, or other infrastructure. Apps that collect information (such as the user's location or behavior) without the user's knowledge (spyware), malicious scripts and password phishing scams are also prohibited on Google Play, as are applications that cause users to unknowingly download or install applications from sources outside of Google Play.
