Recently, a developer of the popular home screen and app launcher app Lawnchair (I love the play on words, and always have) decided to cut ties with the team when it was discovered that the app was using code “stolen” from Google’s Pixel Launcher.

I hate addressing developer drama. People, whether they be software developers or auto mechanics, or anything else, are allowed to have any expectations about their work environment that they want to have. If a developer doesn’t want to be associated with a group that uses copyrighted code without permission, then we should respect that and move along.
