    apps can choose to require connection to google to verify they are legit EVERY TIME they are opened .....so if u happen to be offline then u won't be able to open the app

    Android Market apps now have to check in with licensing servers to confirm legitimacy

    i have no problem paying for apps, but if a cocktail mixing app refuses to open to give me a drink recipe because i happen to be not connected to wifi or a data connection then i would not buy that app ....as it is i do not have an always on data connection.

    There are several options about the way devs can deal with this...including caching the license confirmation. I suspect most networked apps will use this scheme...apps that don't explicitly require access will probably just cache the license verification check so they don't piss off their customers. I think most devs will tread very carefully.
