the problem there is that as a prerequisite to uploading to OVI, you
need to establish some kind of legal entity. Maybe not an actual
company, but something similar, which in the US at least required a
non-trivial financial investment and had tax implications. This made
"iFart" style apps not likely to make it to Ovi as it would cost the
developer more money to upload to ovi then they would ever get back from
selling their app. Nokia promised to review the situation, but did not
promise to actually change the requirement.


for full details. It also might have been discussed on this list.
