Why Apple Rejected My Britney Spears Themed Animated Stickers

Want a ”Piece of Britney” on iMessage? Sorry, you can’t—at least for now.

Talk about my most recent, albeit rejected, animated sticker pack for iMessage has been circulating. In an effort for others to understand the issue, I’m publishing this post to clear things up and ask for your advice.  Read More …

Before completing my original “Piece of Britney” stickers, I did hours of research on two subjects: Right of Publicity laws involving celebrities and a way to contact Britney Spears or her management. In the end, it all led to unsubstantiated, outdated contact information and vague regulations.

So, I submitted the stickers, figuring Apple would lead me down the right path. Thankfully, they did, giving me this clear advise: “Please provide documentary evidence of rights to use this content in your app. Once Legal has reviewed your documentation and confirms its validity, we will proceed with the review of your app.”

Simple, right? Well, like I said, there is so much misinformation about who and how to contact Britney and her team. 

I understand and agree with Apple’s decision to postpone the sticker pack until I have proper documentation—but I still want fans to enjoy it! Maybe you, the reader, can help me out.

If you want to see “Piece of Britney” on the app store, please help me get in touch with Miss Spears or her team to make this happen.

Thank you all for your support.

Have you ever sent an embarrassing text you regret? Ever sent a text to the wrong person? You’re not alone. With Oops, it’s a breeze to bandage up those wrongly sent texts—despite how funny they may be!

With Oops, your nudes and objectionable content are safer. You can now loan your phone to Grandma without worrying she taps the wrong button.

Sentimental types, and hoarders, toil over deleting parts of a conversation. A better solution is to bandage up the unpleasant parts with Oops – Animated Stickers.

Another great use for Oops is when you can’t bare to look at a nasty text but still want to keep the conversation in context. Save yourself some grief, bandage it.

Does your mom hate it when you curse? Show her you care with an apology. Censor your careless banter with a variety of specially made Oops stickers.

Censoring things can also be just plain fun. For example, stick the censors on photos of signs. Pasting a “CENSORED” sticker over the word ‘hands’ on an “Employees must wash hands before leaving” sign makes for a funny guessing game.

Another goal of Oops is to protect you and your contact’s sensitive information from being taken by bystanders peeping over your shoulder, or those borrowing your phone. This is a good idea if you want to keep the password in context instead of deleting it.

Whether your style is conspicuous or demure, Oops – Animated Stickers has what it takes bandage up your iMessage mistakes.
