suraj.sun writes with this excerpt from Ars Technica: “Garen Meguerian and a team of lawyers are taking Apple to task for ‘inducing’ children to spend hundreds of dollars of their parents’ money on in-app game purchases. Meguerian filed a class-action lawsuit this week in California, acknowledging that Apple has already addressed the problem, but saying that the company continues to unfairly profit from sales of virtual ‘smurfberries’ and ‘fish bucks.’ The issue at hand is related to games that rely on a ‘freemium’ business model, giving away the game for free on the App Store and relying on in-app purchases of virtual currency, extra levels, or other add-ons as a revenue stream.”
