Google blocks Movie Rentals on Rooted Android Devices
Google is blocking users with rooted Android devices from renting movies via Android Market. The reason stated is “due to requirements related to copyright protection”. Android 3.1 is only currently available on the Xoom and Android Market movie rentals aren’t yet available on Android 2.2+ devices. So not a large user base is affected with the blockages.
Now the rooting community is already furious about this fact and it looks like there might be a workaround sooner than the world gets updated to movie rentals.
