Apple Company

Granted the Supreme Court the green light to a lawsuit against Apple accusing them of a monopoly.. The court did not find that argument to Apple TV compelling enough. The Supreme Court has upheld the decision of the court of Appeal distinguished in that it can be customers who use the iTunes Store App Store sue Apple because of the height of the alleged price.

Claims the lawsuit that by requiring users of iOS devices to purchase apps through the iTunes Store App Store, even 30 percent of the proceeds from the developers, they have used Apple its to increase the prices of apps and games elects to consumers in what is being described in the lawsuit as ” a lawsuit against the Monopoly Classic “.

The argument was Apple is that customers were already buying apps from developers and that developers were customers of the iTunes Store App Store. Wrote Judge Brett Kavanaugh ” that the line drawn by Apple not make much sense, except for the representation of a way to banish Apple about this lawsuit and other lawsuits similar “.

Was Apple based on the principle of Illinois Brick The Zealot, which provides that ” the purchasers are not direct ” of the organization do not have the legal basis to assess the issue of antitrust. The Supreme Court decided in its judgment that this principle does not apply in the case of Apple.

To be clear, the government is not about whether Apple is the monopoly illegal on the iTunes Store App Store or not. As the Supreme Court notes, this case is still at an early stage, so there was no verdict on them yet.
