    Does that mean that they have the rights to distribute any program that is entered into their competition in their flashcart products? That's some pretty scary stuff... Reminds me of that DS card that had a hack version of DSOrganize, or the R4 which has a modified version of Moonshell...

    Yes they can include entries with their products. I expect they will include motion homebrew with their motion devices. I think it's a fair condition, their prizes are generous enough.

    I think they'd only use your app/game if it won a prize anyway so it's pretty win-win.

    Uh, the only modification the moonshell that the R4 comes with has is that it has a working reset.mse that lets you soft reset, other than that it's the same thing. Nothing wrong with including software like that, I think a lot of homebrew carts come with moonshell since it's just something you kind of expect nowadays. The cart that had DSO without asking permission and releasing their modified source was effed up, but other than that I don't think these guys are going to rip people off or anything, it's their contest to do with what they please.
