According to a recent major report by Politico, the US Justice Department is at the beginning of the draft of a potential complaint report against Apple.
So well-known American Successful brand Apple could face a legal hardship soon. Reportedly, to Politico, the US Justice Department is at the beginning of the draft of a potential complaint report against Apples. The Department has not decided whether to put charges on the company. But most likely it is expectedly to be done by end of this year.
Why US Justice Department is about to sue Apple?
Apple’s is fending off a raft of antitrust challenges around the globe, and Match’s July filing adds to two other cases in India, though Match is the first foreign company to mount such a challenge against the iPhone maker in the country.
Apples and CCI (The Competition Commission of India) has not responded to any queries of Reuter. While a Match spokesperson declined to comment on its filing. But despite that berry conduct restricts innovation and development of app developers that offer apples digital services enforcing the use of its proprietary in-app purchase system and “excessive” 30% commission.
A similar dispute in the Netherlands resulted in a 50 million euro fine for berry and an agreement to allow different payment methods in Dutch dating applications. The U.S. giant has long mandated the use of its in-app payment system, which charges commissions that some developers like Match have argued are too high globally.
The Apples investigation is one of a series of efforts by Congress, the DOJ, and the Federal Trade Commission to rein in the mammoth tech companies that have come to dominate the global internet, social media, and online advertising. The FTC is also pursuing an antitrust investigation of Amazon involving both its retail and cloud computing businesses.
The suit would be the latest major legal problem besetting the country’s biggest tech companies, two years after federal regulators and multiple states filed antitrust cases against Google and Facebook. And it would be the DOJ’s first antitrust suit against one of the tech titans is during President Joe Biden’s administration.
