Dutch Antitrust Regulator Pursuing Investigation of Apple for Favouring Its Own Apps
The European Commission said the investigation complements its own probe, which was prompted by Swedish music streaming service Spotify’s complaint that Apple abuses its position.
Apple, which is already under investigation by the EU for antitrust violations, is now the subject of a probe by the Dutch Competition Authority (ACM), which is looking into whether Apple is abusing the dominant position of its App Store on the Dutch market for applications. The regulatory body suggested the investigation may be expanded to Google’s Play Store because of similar business practices.
