In-app purchases. Who's to blame?

Last week, a California judge gave the go-ahead for a class action suit against Apple brought by a group of parents upset about In-App Purchases in games and how kids were racking up huge bills from them. Is Apple responsible, or does the blame lie elsewhere? (Android, Apple, Google, iPad, iPhone, Pocket Frogs, Smurfs' Village)

This is ridiculous. Do you hand your kid a credit card normally and say "Go for it!"

If you're letting your kids play these games, make sure your card isn't automatically linked up. That's what a sensible parent would do.

this isnt about people giving their kids free roam over their credit card, its about parents who authorized their child to make one purchase by entering their password and apple mistakenly authorizing 10-15 purchases instead of just the one.
