 Is there any way for me to resize an app to make it smaller and placing it
top left? I understand that there is a theme -> Dialog its possible to make
the window size smaller but is it possible for me to dictate the x, y, dx,
and dy where the dialog has to be placed?

1. About Terms & conditions to submit an application

It's not clear for me the paragraph #10 in "ANDROID DEVELOPER
CHALLENGE TERMS & CONDITIONS". I'm confused and I need understand what
the real meaning on this topic. Google has a serious reputation, but
this paragraph shows something different for Android alliance. The
Android challenge FAQ shows a different point of view of this useless
participant property rights.

If Android challenge will distribute the software platform and
applications for free to "advertise, display, demonstrate, or
otherwise promote the Android platform" what is the real value of
"ownership and intellectual and industrial property rights"?. Android
alliance could distribute the application for free and get revenue
from other sources.
Please note the AND after the "...solely for..... purposes of the

Even worst scenery, if the participant is not selected (position #51
in the challenge), Google could use the participant's application to
promote the android for free and the participant will not have any
chance to compete and get any value in the future  from its work.
I'm a software developer, not an attorney, but the text "perpetual,
irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free ....." are hard terms for me. The
US patent and trademark office can't grant a patent or trademark on
these terms.

I read the FAQ when I start working on this challenge and I'm confused
with these new terms.
Thank you

Extract from FAQ:
Will I continue to own my application after I submit it to the Android
Developer Challenge?
Developers retain all intellectual property and other rights to their
applications while granting Google a license to evaluate and test the
application for purposes of the Challenge as well as a license to
display the application to promote the Android platform. More
information will be provided when we make the Terms and Conditions
