Play Store personal, non-commercial only?
I am setting up a Galaxy Tab 2 we are trying out, and I noticed the following in the Google Play Terms of Service:
License to Use Products. Following payment of the applicable fees for a Product, you will have the non-exclusive right, for the period selected by you in the case of a purchase for a rental period, and in other cases for as long as Google and the applicable copyright holder have rights to provide you that Product, to download or stream, in each case, solely as expressly permitted by Google via the Play user interface and subject to the restrictions set forth in these Terms and associated policies, copies of the applicable Product to your Devices, and to view, use, and display the Product on your Devices or as otherwise authorized by Google as part of the Service for your personal, non-commercial use only. All rights, title and interest in Google Play and Products not expressly granted to you in these Terms are reserved by Google and its licensors.
Am I missing something or does that mean a school, particular a private school, could not use the Play store at all? What legal avenues does that leave for us to purchase apps?
It seems bizarre for Google to be barring businesses from using the store. The Apple App store has terms specifically allowing use by businesses. Google Play for Education seems to be coming but not actually available yet, and it is not clear to me whether it will be available in the UK straight away.
