De l’hypocrisie des monopsones

Javier Espinoza et Tim Bradshaw, Financial Times :

The investigation into the App Store comes after a complaint from Spotify in March 2019 and a subsequent complaint from ereader company Kobo over how Apple takes a 30 per cent commission on every subscription signed up through its App Store in the first year, and then a 15 per cent cut.

At the same time, the companies complained, Apple has promoted its own music and books services. The European Commission is also looking at whether App Store rules stifle competition in gaming and cloud services, according to people with direct knowledge of the situation.

Bien sûr, Kobo permet de changer facilement la boutique intégrée à ses liseuses. Bien sûr, Kobo permet d’exporter facilement les livres achetés sur sa boutique pour les lire avec d’autres liseuses. Comment ça, non et non ?
