The Pulse application was recently applauded at WWDC for changing the way RSS readers work on the iPad, but now it's been pulled from sale on the App Store. You can see a demo of the RSS reader application in the video above.
So why was this application pulled? Well, according to The New York Times via All Things D, the Pulse application infringes upon copyrights it holds.
9to5 Mac got hold of the email sent to the developer from the App Store team to the developer, and the email sent to Apple from the NYT. Below is the email, in its entirety:
