What this means is that an application cannot download
interpreted code to run, it does not prohibit interpreted code already
shipped with the application.
I am not expert (neither in English nor in legal stuff) but the article
I point to talked about a legal C64 emulator shipped with packages of
legal old C64 applications. So it is not (only) about downloading stuff
(beside, how do you get scripts to the phone, unless typing them?).
Now, the article also points to other applications with interpreters
already on the App Store.
Looks like it depends on whims of Applet, basically.
Just wanted people to be aware of the potential issue. :-)
