 Are you trying to purchase your own app? I got the same error when I
did, but not when I purchased someone else's.

 Yup, it appears as though you can't buy your own app!  :)

Android Market: server error when "authorizing credit card"

 Heh... I guess it would create some problems if you tried to purchase
an app with your own account for, say, 1 dollar... So your account is
then $-1.00, Google gets $0.30 and you get the other $0.70, bringing
your own account up to $-0.30. Then if you return the app you would be
refunded $1.00, and Google would take away your $0.70 profit... and
you would be back to $1.00... but it would probably spawn some
infinite loop and all hell would break loose on the Android Market (oh
wait, it already has).


Suggestion: Displaying the message "You may not purchase your own
goods from the Market" would be much more informative than "A server
error has occurred." (Thus avoiding the developer hitting Retry a
bunch of times!) :-)

2. Is it possible to use official Android icons in paid apps?

Hello,

is there some sort of prohibition to use official Android icons in
paid apps?

The Android SDK Terms of use reports this:

"3.3 Except to the extent required by applicable third party licenses,
you may not copy (except for backup purposes), modify, adapt,
redistribute, decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, or create
derivative works of the SDK or any part of the SDK. Except to the
extent required by applicable third party licenses, you may not load
any part of the SDK onto a mobile handset or any other hardware device
except a personal computer, combine any part of the SDK with other
software, or distribute any software or device incorporating a part of
the SDK."


"3.6 Nothing in this License Agreement gives you a right to use any of
Google's trade names, trademarks, service marks, logos, domain names,
or other distinctive brand features."

Icons should be considered "part of the SDK" or "distinctive brand
features"?

Thanks
