"Over the weekend developer Yong Zhang, known on the Android Market as yongzh saw his Android developer account revoked and all the apps he offers removed from the Market. The apps he was offering were all emulators for popular older systems including the NES, SNES, Genesis, N64, Atari, Game Gear, and Game Boy. But Google has seen fit to remove all of them ( including Nesoid, Snesoid, Gensoid, N64oid, Ataroid, Gearoid, and Gameoid).

"The issue for Zhang is this move by Google has suddenly removed all his revenue streams from Android Market without warning. It also causes a problem for Android users who purchased the apps as they can no longer receive updates or re-download the emulators."
