For all the talk of app store disapprovals for no good reason, sometimes Apps make it into the store that perhaps shouldn’t be there - take, for example, some of the lyrics-serving Apps, which face friction from the copyright police.

A case in point from Music Ally this morning - a new series of 99-cent ‘Sing Along With’ Apps from developer, Apptia.

These Apps don’t mention the names of the artists whose song lyrics are included within the applications, and nor has the developer paid for use of the copyrighted music, the report explains.

Artists include Shania Twain, Phil Collins, Lady Gaga and Nickelback.
