Default Paid apps return to Google Play in Taiwan after 18 months of legal wrangling

Android users living in Taiwan have something to celebrate: paid apps have returned to the Google Play store. The ability to purchase apps from the Taiwanese Play store was suspended over a year and a half ago when Google entered a legal battle with the local government. The issue? Taiwan's consumer protection laws demanded paid apps include a seven day trial period, but the Google Play refund period lasts only 15 minutes. Mountain View pulled paid apps from the region while it filed appeals and lawsuits with the local government, which eventually won it the right to handle returns and trials as it saw fit. Taiwanese users can now view Google Play's Top Paid apps page and actually purchases a few, too. Worth 20 months of waiting? We think so.
