Apparently he can now bring this app back if he wants to. The other Winamp remotes were able to come back and all they needed to do was add (r) after each time they wrote Winamp and then include a statement about Winamp's trademark. I really hope he cares enough to give it another go.
AOL can be real dicks about this stuff. Then they turn around and write "iTunes" in their application's description without any trademark information. I'd understand them doing this if they were going to put out their own remote, but that's not the case.
