An infant in a pool is hardly pornographic and certainly not "sexual exploitation". Blind Faith's cover photo on their eponymous 1969 album is far more sexual and far more exploitative by any possible measure. Yet the 'victim' Mariora Goschen, who was paid a measly £40, is quoted in the linked article as saying "… when people tell me they can remember what they were doing when they first saw the cover, and the effect it had on them, I’m thrilled to bits.”

Many of the posters here seem to think that Apple is punishing small producers and craft shops selling low quantities of products. The companies affected are well established third party vendors that spent months or years getting into the Apple Store. They know there's a price to pay for the exposure on Apple's shelves, virtual or digital. Once the 15 - 30 day payable changes are made, the flow of cash will return to normal.FTR I was an Apple dealer for years. We bought and owned our inventory through distributors that included their markup. Most big box vendors that we competed with were essentially consignment shops buying direct from manufacturers at a lower cost than us and other dealers. It sucks but you work your own competitive advantage, which, for years, was our product knowledge and customer service.
