 Why is forcing a view to draw called Invalidate()?

 I guess kind of like java.awt.Component#invalidate(), telling the
renderer that the area is no longer valid so it should redraw.

1. Error when build android-1.5r2

      I am getting an error when building the using the latest
android-1.5r2 branch.

external/qemu/sockets.c: In function ock_address_init_resolve
external/qemu/sockets.c:637: error: AI_NODATAundeclared (first use
in this function)
external/qemu/sockets.c:637: error: (Each undeclared identifier is
reported only once
external/qemu/sockets.c:637: error: for each function it appears in.)
make: *** [out/host/linux-x86/obj/EXECUTABLES/emulator_intermediates/
sockets.o] Error 1

I am using fedora 10. Shouldn't this branch compile cleanly out of the
box? I faced similar issue with android-1.5, and was forced to work
with android-sdk-1.5pre for sometime.

How can I fix this error?

Best regards,


2. Copyright enforcement outside of the US

It's just been brought to my attention that someone totally unrelated to 
AndAppStore has uploaded the client to Android Market under the label "File 
Manager" (, which 
is (correctly imho) being slated as it isn't a file manager. We allow free 
inclusion in ports, but we retain copyright over it to ensure that we can stop 
developers doing stupid things with it (e.g. uploading it to Market claiming 
it's a file manager).

Now here is my problem; We are not a US based entity, did not download it to 
the US, we're not using equipment or services purchased from the US,  and the 
developer who has uploaded the app would appear to not be US based either, and 
yet the only method provided by Google for removal of infringing content is a 
DMCA notice, which is a US only law.

We have no wish to pay out to engage the services US attorney to explore the 
intricacies of the DMCA and accept Googles forced T&Cs where we would cover 
their US attorneys costs if the DMCA takedown was unsuccessful just to stop a 
clear infringement of our copyright under UK law.

So, we're going to get in contact with Google UK to start, but does anyone have 
any other suggestions on how to ensure that our copyright is upheld without 
needing to go through the US legal system.
