The War Against Infringement On The Android Market Is Heating Up: Fruit Ninja Clones And More

The Android market is filled with apps of questionable legality. But oftentimes, overpriced, branded theme and clock apps like those you'll find here are considered relatively harmless - who's stupid enough to buy them, anyway?
