Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has updated its App Store Review Guidelines to account for medical research through the soon-to-be-released Apple Watch. The update also brings new guidelines that bans media ripping apps from services like YouTube, Vimeo and SoundCloud.
One of the most game-changing announcements made by Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) during its Monday event for the Apple Watch and its new computers was ResearchKit. With the new platform coupled with the sensors of the Apple Watch, researchers could tap into a number of participants for studies that was usually unheard of before.
In the subsection to for HealthKit and ResearchKit, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) said that apps conducting health-related human subject research can only get data after they obtain consent from participants or from the parent or guardian of a minor.
“Such consent must include the (a) nature, purpose, and duration of the research; (b) procedures, risks, and benefits to the participant; (c) information about confidentiality and handling of data (including any sharing with third parties); (d) a point of contact for participant questions; and (e) the withdrawal process,” the updated guidelines say.
Meanwhile, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is also sounding the death knell for media ripping apps in the subsection for Content and Intellectual Property Rights.
“Apps that include the ability to download music or video content from third party sources (e.g. YouTube, SoundCloud, Vimeo, etc) without explicit authorization from those sources will be rejected,” Apple writes.
Benjamin A. Smith’s Laurion Capital Management owned about 2.16 million Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) shares by the end of 2014.
