Apple Cracks Down on App Pirates

Apple has stepped up its efforts to stop app piracy. The company has reportedly sent a number of takedown notices to Apptrackr, a service that connects users with pirated apps. However, Apptrackr is attempting to avoid the crackdown by moving to servers located outside the U.S. and avoiding direct links to content that violates copyrights. Apptrackr claims that the primary purpose of its service is to allow users to try apps before they buy.

Some iOS developers report app piracy rates as high as 80 percent.
