A recently filed Class Action lawsuits against Apple has come to light as two developers recently claimed that the tech giant has a “monopoly” in the App Store.
While it’ll be interesting to see how the latest filing turns out, the tech giant shouldn’t be surprised at the development as Apple faced similar lawsuit earlier last year. However, this time around, the latest lawsuit aims at the company’s distribution model of apps throughout the store. The lawsuit states that the company’s practices are hurting competitions as well as consumers.
In a full page, HBSS Law said, “We believe that developers who work hard to design, build, and sell their own apps and in-app digital products in app stores should not be harmed by unfair or anti-competitive behavior from big tech companies. Our legal team is investigating your rights pertaining to the distribution of iOS apps and in-app digital products through the App Store.”
Given that similar lawsuits haven’t gained much attention in the past, it’ll be interesting to see if this one gains fuel in the coming days. Especially as other tech giants have started to face charges for similar lawsuits recently.
