Zuckerberg: Apple App Store deserves scrutiny

Wednesday, 09. September 2020 06:38

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg told Axios in an interview he believes Apple Inc. should be investigated by the United States government over anticompetitive behavior on its App Store.

"I do think that there are questions that people should be looking into about that control of the App Store and whether that is enabling as robust of a competitive dynamic," Zuckerberg explained. "I think some of the behavior certainly raises questions," he added.

Epic Games, the maker of Fortnite, in August filed a lawsuit against Apple alleging its control of the App Store gives it a monopoly in a move that comes after the European Commission opened a probe into whether the company had broken EU competition rules with its App Store policies.
