Im just wondering. Can anyone answer?

Im just wondering if there are any copy right laws for publishing on google play. Like I have seen the same crystal ball app as the one treehouse made on the play store. I am just making sure because I don't want to get in to any trouble with copyright or anything. So if anyone can help me with this question it would be nice.

Yes, we encourage you to upload your Crystal Ball, and there are no legal restrictions. :) You can upload whatever you want as long as you follow the guidelines and respect the licenses of any 3rd party libraries you are using. There are tons of Hello World apps, for example.

Ok, so just don't be so "thorough", and upload the thing. I'm pretty sure there is no legal problem involve, treehouse don't make money by creating crystal balls apps, Mr "thorough".
