Adobe Plans to Charge Royalties on High-Earning Flash Apps

by Developer.com Staff

Developers who make more than $50K will owe the company a 9 percent fee.

Adobe has announced a new pricing scheme for its Flash technology. Beginning in August, developers who use Flash's "premium features" to build their apps must pay Adobe a 9 percent licensing fee on app sales over $50,000.
