Is the developer or Android Market selling the Apps?

 If I had to guess, given that it's apparently impossible to buy an app from
the Android Market in any other currency than dollars, that collecting and
documenting VAT is another aspect of all of this that hasn't actually been
thought through. And no, history would suggest that you won't get anything
like authoritative advice here. Which is interesting, all by itself.

(This may not get posted to the android-discuss list--last I heard, I was
still being "moderated" by Dan Morrill for having actually attempted to
discuss a news story here...)

Is the developer or Android Market selling the Apps?

 Developers need to be clear and understand if they are the ones selling the
apps and giving a cut to Android Market.  This has totally different
liabilities from Android Market selling the apps and giving a cut to the
developer.
So developers, my question is to gauge what your understanding is till now:

Are you selling the app and issuing a receipt/invoice or is Android Market
selling it for you?

 eorge,

My understanding is that Market provides an all-in-one billing and
payment on behalf of the developer and the developer is the one selling
the app to the customer. Google then take their 30% cut for the service
provided.

This is the approach that Checkout is designed for, it's how PayPal
works, and so it would be unusual (but not impossible) for Market to
deviate from this model.

I would be very interested in an official answer to this question.

1. Comments lost in the developer console and market app

Hi,

I don't know why, but some of my app comments lost in the developer console.
I cannot find them....All comments after 2010/12/20 is lost. But it seems
that comments total number is right. Does any body has the same problem? I
also used Market to see my app's comments,  same issue.

Thanks,

Alex

2. HTC Desire (w/SenseUI) not properly decoding xml chars

Well I've run into an issue in my keyboard where an HTC Desire is not 
properly decoding the & into an & on the keyboard.
It seems to be limited to the HTC Desire specifically (I don't know if that 
also includes the Desire Z/HD) with the Sense UI installed, so I suspect 
it's related to the Sense UI software itself.

Has anyone seen this problem before and if you did was there a solution?

I'll also try and contact whoever makes Sense UI, but I'm finding that most 
of these companies are somewhat incognito.
