SCOTUS Rules Users Can Sue Apple For Allegedly Monopolizing Apps Market

HeadlineMay 14, 2019
H9 supreme court class action lawsuit apple monopoly apps

Back in the U.S., the Supreme Court ruled Monday that consumers can sue Apple for exercising a monopoly over the apps market. The court, however, did not determine whether or not Apple does in fact have a monopoly on the market and a class action lawsuit will likely now move ahead in lower courts. Apple charges a 30 percent sales commission to app developers while excluding them from making sales outside its “App Store.” Meanwhile, Apple has its own set of competing services like Apple News+ and an upcoming streaming service. Justice Brett Kavanaugh joined the liberal justices in their 5-4 ruling.
