Some of you probably already know this, but I received an e-mail from Google Play four days ago, telling me that Mizuu had been removed from Google Play due to a “violation of the intellectual property and impersonation or deceptive behavior provisions of the Content Policy.”
There’s been quite a bit of talk about it on Google+ and Reddit since then, and just a few hours ago I received word that it has been reinstated. I’ve republished the application and it is now online again. For anyone wondering, it seems like the issue wasn’t related to the app icon nor the screenshots. I was asked to prove to Google that I was authorized to use the data from www.themoviedb.org.
I haven’t posted anything about it here, as I wanted to wait until I received a final decision.
Anyway, just wanted to let you guys know what happened and how it turned out.
