Google Temporarily Removes Music Cap On De-authorizations, Goes Back to the Drawing Board
The logic behind doing this was simply to comply to the requests of Google’s music partners who wanted to limit the abuse because users could technically share legally purchased music by sharing the Google account and then downloading that music. Unfortunately, Google would count a newly flashed ROM on the same device as a second device leading to multiple counting and multiple de-authorizations.
After numerous user complaints, Google announced it would remove the new policy change and try to come up with a better solution that would compromise the needs of the music partners and the users.
It’s nice to see the speed in which Google responds to its customers and hopefully a more effective solution will be implemented in the near future.
