FAS requires Apple to stop violating competition laws within 60 days

Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) has issued an order to Apple regarding the imposition of adverse contract terms on iOS app developers. This, “interfax“. In the actions of the brand, the antimonopoly department saw the fact of violation of competition law.

Apple Inc. within a period not exceeding 60 calendar days from the date of receipt of this order, cease violating the Anti-Competition Act, expressed by imposing adverse contractual terms on iOS app developers by including clause 3.1 of the App Store Review Guide … by forcing it to drop,” says FAS materials.

The agency’s main complaint against Apple is that iOS app developers are prohibited from encouraging users to make in-app purchases outside of the app, which is a disadvantage for iOS app developers. Complicating the situation is that iOS apps do not have a distribution platform other than the App Store, where their entry can be denied if the developer violates such an agreement.

Morocco in July blamed Apple It violates antitrust laws in Russia. The company now faces a turnover penalty, the amount of which will be determined later.
