Truth & Rumors: Apple says no to Tiger cartoon app on iPhone

Deadspin reports that cartoonist Daryl Cagle's Tiger Woods editorial cartoons app was rejected by Apple because it ridicules a public figure. In light of the plethora of Woods' sex-scandal-related press coverage over the past six months, the fact that anyone would shy away from Tiger-driven exposure might raise some eyebrows. But according a letter from Apple, the app, which is designed to collate recent editorial cartoons about the four-time Masters winner, violates iPhone license agreements:

"Thank you for submitting Tiger Woods Cartoons to the App Store. We've reviewed Tiger Woods Cartoons and determined that we cannot post this version of your iPhone application to the App Store because it contains content that ridicules public figures and is in violation of Section 3.3.17 from the iPhone Developer Program License Agreement which states:
"Applications may be rejected if they contain content or materials of any kind (text, graphics, images, photographs, sounds, etc.) that in Apple's reasonable judgement may be found objectionable, for example, materials that may be considered obscene, pornographic, or defamatory."

"The Masters had the problem of not knowing what to expect, if the Open Championship would have been Tiger's first event back, we'd be scratching our heads. We're very pleased not to be the guinea pigs."
