1. Turning OFF the copy protection on Market. Still any known issues?

Hi Guys,

I guess the title says it all! Are there still any known issues for
modifying the copy protection on Market (actually to turn it OFF)?

I've heard and read some horror stories from developers, and I don't want to
risk my application reputation and rating!

Let me know if I can do it without any worry.

Thank you,


2. GMail and some email clients always open the built-in media player for wave file attachments

In my "Remote Wave" application, I configured the intent filter as

                <action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW" />
android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE" />
                <data android:scheme="file" />
                <data android:mimeType="audio/x-wav" />
                <data android:mimeType="audio/x-gsm" />
                <data android:mimeType="audio/wav" />

I works on browser based email client and some other email clients,
the user tap on the file, "Open with" will show and user can choose
"Remote Wave" to play wave, gsm files.

But native GMail client and some email clients always open the built-
in media player and GMail client event doesn't allow you to download.

Did I do something wrong? Please help.
