Japan investigates Apple for anti-competitive behavior - report

Thursday 16 August 2018 | 10:13 CET | News
Japan's Fair Trade Commission is investigating allegations that pressure from Apple forced Yahoo Japan to pull back from a game platform that competes with the App Store, Nikkei reports. The Commission and the Industry Ministry started receiving reports from Yahoo in autumn 2017 about issues surrounding its Game Plus platform. The web-based service, launched in July 2017, enables users to play games without downloading apps. For developers, the service features much looser restrictions surrounding sales, fees and software updates than Apple's App Store.
