Hello
Google rejected one of my app and I appealed it.

Reason of rejection:
Issue: Violation of Device and Network Abuse policy and section 4.9 of the Developer Distribution Agreement
We don’t allow apps that interfere with, disrupt, damage, or access in an unauthorized manner the user’s device, other devices or computers, servers, networks, application programming interfaces (APIs), or services, including but not limited to other apps on the device, any Google service, or an authorized carrier’s network.

Per section 4.9 of the Developer Distribution Agreement: “You will not engage in any activity with Google Play, including making Your Products available via Google Play, that interferes with, disrupts, damages, or accesses in an unauthorized manner the devices, servers, networks, or other properties or services of any third party including, but not limited to, Google or any Authorized Provider. You may not use user information obtained via Google Play to sell or distribute Products outside of Google Play.”
Google replay to my appeal:

Hi,

Thanks for contacting the Google Play Team and I am sorry for the delayed response.
During review, we found that your app (com....)violates section 4.9 of theDeveloper Distribution Agreement (DDA):
  • You agree that you will not engage in any activity with the Store, including the development or distribution of Products, that interferes with, disrupts, damages, or accesses in an unauthorized manner the devices, servers, networks, or other properties or services of any third party including, but not limited to, Android users, Google or any mobile network operator. You may not use customer information obtained from the Store to sell or distribute Products outside of the Store.
For example, your app allows users to download Soundcloud's content.






After making changes, if you believe your app complies with our policies, please submit your app and we’ll review it again.

This rejection doesn't impact the standing of your Google Play Developer Account, but repeated violations can result in the suspension of this app or your Google Play Developer account.

If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.

Kind regards,
Jane
The Google Play Team
Main purpose of my app podcasts from soundcloud, I entered in it soundcloud rss feed and users can listen and download this sounds from many channels.

So I think you need to make an option to active or disable download from podcasts feed to solve this issue.

I had similar issue but updated all my affected apps to template version 3.1.42 and they were initially accepted but days later suspended again. Then I updated to template version 3.1.43 and so far they have all been reinstated (few days now)
