So - I'm feeling rather dejected at the moment. Truth is, my apps were non-compliant and I can't really argue/appeal the case.
Up until this morning I had 30+ quizzes on Google Play. Many of them were sports quizzes and I appear to have suffered the 3 strikes and you are out on copyright infringement.
The 3 quizzes that were removed this morning were an American football players quiz (NFL was in the title), a football (soccer) quiz (FIFA was in the title) and another football (soccer stadiums) quiz (FIFA again in the title). Immediately following the emails I got this morning about the removal of the 3 quizzes, I got an Account Termination email.
I had the words FIFA, and NFL in the quiz titles. Just checked FIFA on Google Play and there are lots and lots of apps using the word FIFA - many without permission I'm sure.
I've only just finished uploading all these quizzes in one batch - using Corona's x-platform capability to move my already established quizzes on iOS over to Google play. It doesn't make my actions right, but there are copyright infringements all over Google Play (and iOS!) for quizzes and it's rather painful to get the termination knowing that there are many many many violations on there. I could list several quizzes by developers on this forum who are in violation who have not had their accounts terminated. No need, I'm really not trying to rage at individuals - just at Google Play for their seemingly random targeting.
There will be people reading this and agree with Google Play - and I get that.
It's ironic - Apple accepted the quizzes months ago and they have (usually) strict human reviewers and Google Play have rejected. Ouch.
This is a heads up for those developers (and there are many on here doing quizzes) that may fall foul.
PS I will contact Google Play and ask if it was the images (players & stadiums) or the quiz names or both that were non-compliant.
