Nokia Publish Support Team Presents Our Updated FAQ List V.2
The Nokia Publish Support Team is happy to share a compiled list of top common questions posted by our publishers! This information has been updated in our [URL="http://support.publish.ovi.com/"]Support Page[/URL] where you can find the answers to many publishing questions.
#1: Why is my content item not available in the Nokia Store?
There could be several explanations for this and the top reasons are:
1. Your item has not been published
2. The device and country distribution settings are outside your search parameter
3. The search date is not within the start and end dates of the content item
For more information on these reasons, please refer to the check-list in our Nokia Publish Support page: [URL="http://support.publish.ovi.com/?p=1999"]Checklist - Item not Available in Nokia Store. [/URL]
#2 How can I protect my content item from being hacked?
Digital Rights Management (DRM) is an option available to prevent illegal distribution of your content item. With the Forward Lock method, a server encapsulates a content file in a DRM message before sending it to a device. That device can launch the file but cannot distribute it to other devices. To learn more about applying DRM to your content item, please refer to [URL="http://support.publish.ovi.com/?cat=6&topic=9&faq=How%20can%20I%20apply%20DRM%20to%20my%20content?"]Applying DRM to Content [/URL]

There are a number of devices which support Qt content items. The latest list can be found at the following link: [URL="http://www.developer.nokia.com/Devices/Device_specifications/?filter1=qt"]Device Specifications[/URL]. Select “Qt” from the drop down menu of the basic device filter.
#4 When can I expect my payment after receiving the invoice?

For games and applications, a valid support website is required to provide our end users with a support channel for troubleshooting purposes. Please create a support website with valid contact information and resubmit your item for review. The support website should include your support email address. The email address needs to be clear and visible on the home page.
Please note that for personalization content, a support website is not required.
