I have an online service that adds on additional features to an existing online service. It's currently only accessible via desktop. It has free features and premium features that are offered via a subscription service.
I've recently created an app version and applied to the Apple App Store. After a few back and forths with Apple, they have responsed with
Guideline 3.2.2(vii) - Business - Other Business Model Issues - Unacceptable
Your app contains content or features that may violate the rights of one or more third parties.
****Removed one line for confidentiality here. It was pointing out which features were specifically out of line(basically the core features)****
Your app and its contents should not infringe upon the rights of another party. In the event your app infringes another party’s rights, you are responsible for any liability to Apple because of a claim.
To resolve this issue, please remove any features or functionality that ****Removed for confidentiality. Above features****.
I don't think that it infringes upon the rights of the other company since it only adds features and it does not affect the revenue stream of the other company. In fact it may increase their revenue.
Google has approved the app already.
Could anybody shed some light on what my options might be? Or if this is the end of the road? Also if these details are too little and you need more?
