I still don't understand it completely, what did poweramp try to charge ibasso for? Some copyright you say, but I would think that the only copyright involved would be the one over the API, and in that case wouldn't it be the other way around?
And in any case, if it is poweramp who wanted to charge ibasso, couldn't they please ask us customers wether we are willing to absorve that cost?
I gues it would probably be too much, but if that was the case then the idea would have never made sense.
The way I see it, if there was no charging involved, ibasso would win because many of it's customers wolud be much more satisfied with a better working product, and poweramp would win from what it charged for the app, which could be considerably more than what they charge for the regular poweramp.
The only obstacle I see, is ibasso's concern that it's API could be revealed to others through poweramp, but this could be easily prevented with some sort of confidentiality agreement.
sorry if this mekes on sense
