Apple has reversed a ban on the app version of Robert Berry's comic book edition of James Joyce's "Ulysses," which has nudity. Apple has also lifted a ban on a graphic that shows 2 men kissing in Tom Bouden's graphic novel of Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest."
The Associated Press quotes Trudy Miller of Apple saying the developers had been "allowed to resubmit their original drawings" and use the original artwork.
It was about 75 years ago that the U.S. Federal Courts ruled that "Ulysses" was not pornographic or obscene. The case did not go to the Supreme Court. The novel had also been banned in Britain, but was legalized in 1936.
