    Just observation about security and protection.

    I bought Angry Birds some time ago for N8. Now I tried to re-download it on C7. Wifi was weak in that time and I had 2 times failed to downoad. Finally the game was downloaded successfully. After some time I found on E drive the Angry Birds installation sis file that I can easily pull out for "use" outside ovi store. Is it just sudden fail of ovi installation process or it is in general, that programs in ovi store are not protected against stealing?

    Is it a .sis file, or a .sis.dm?
    .sis files are normally protected with DRM so if ever you can find the file on your phone it should be as ".sis.dm", which unlike a normal .sis file can only be installed on the device it was first installed on.
    Normally though, as far as I can tell, they are not viewable in normal directories that you have access to (except for some reason all Flash Lite content packaged as .sis files, which end up in an easy to find directory, albeit still protected as a .sis.dm).

    angrybirds_v1_4_3_128085.sis - looks like ordinary.. but maybe you are right, it could be drm locked inside.

    If it's just ".sis" (and not ".sis.dm"), I'm afraid it really looks like it is NOT protected. Something wrong then.
