The blog also said Apple claimed this could change in the future and pointed out that the iTunes Store did not sell songs with explicit lyrics when it first opened - a situation that has since been remedied.
That's a very nice and tidy explanation, but there's only one problem: the iTunes Store currently sells seasons 1 to 12 of South Park's television show in the iTunes Store as well as the South Park movie and an uncensored version of South Park's Emmy-award-winning three-part series 'Imaginationland'.
How can the South Park iPhone app be excluded, but the South Park movie - which features such wholesome content like, "Shut your f$%#ing face Uncle F#$%er" and other fabulous show stoppers - is perfectly acceptable?
It seems to me that this has less to do with "potentially offensive" material, and more to do with a product potentially harmful to Apple's bottom line.
