Lawsuit blasting Apple’s App Store as anticompetitive headed to Supreme Court
Is Apple monopolistic in the way it distributes downloadable applications through its App Store? In the way it takes a 30 percent cut out of fees for paid apps, passing the rest on to developers, and limiting those developers to the company’s official store for apps?
Those questions will be part of a case the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear on Monday. The high court said it would focus on a narrow slice of the issue — on Apple’s claim that app developers are the ones who have standing here to bring an antitrust suit.
