Apple sued by feds and over 12 states in anti-trust case

Apple lawyers get ready this is going to be a big anti-trust case you will all be employed and make money!




"Washington CNN —

The US Justice Department and more than a dozen states filed a blockbuster antitrust lawsuit against Apple on Thursday. It’s the latest – but largest – in a recent string of Big Tech companies to face monopoly accusations from the US government, which is cracking down on the massive industry whose power has gone largely unchecked over the past several decades.

The long-anticipated lawsuit comes after years of allegations by critics that Apple has harmed competition with restrictive app store terms, high fees and its “walled-garden” approach to its hardware and software: Apple famously makes its tech easy to use, but it achieves that by tightly controlling - and in some cases, restricting - how third-party companies can interact with the tech behemoth’s products and services. In some cases, Apple may give its own products better access and features than its competitors. The company said it denied the lawsuit’s allegations and would fight them.

“Apple undermines apps, products, and services that would otherwise make users less reliant on the iPhone,” the Justice Department said in a press release. “Apple exercises its monopoly power to extract more money from consumers, developers, content creators, artists, publishers, small businesses, and merchants, among others.” "

This one might make the App Store more accessible to smaller companies but will cost Apple in the process to fight this case.

Some of you might not remember how they broke up AT&T on January 1st 1984 into 7 "Baby Bells" If they decide to break you up they will.

I remember that one. Being big is nice and it attracts a lot of attention not always in a good way for the company.
