We have removed the Swype application post for the time being as we ate currently talking to the Swype team regarding copyright infringment.
The product may be part of a ROM and not available commercially to the public but it is still protected and the author has the right to reqest its removal.
Maybe! But there was a user with "The Swype Team" ID, apparently representative of Swype developing team, earlier today, posted their statement regarding this issue under all 9 existing "Swype" threads in MoDaCo and at the same time granted permission for use of their product to all users, actually the ripped CAB, however he DID point at rippers/hackers regrading their action and said "we are obligated to state that we don't condone such activity nor support the result".
So, If they are still standing their ground that no one is allowed to use this CAB, based on removal of all thread on MoDaCo, I'll respect it and delete it from my device and wait for a retail one, as I told him earlier, and if not!? I prefer to keep it and continue my experience with Swype while waiting for an official release.
