Google Play for iOS? Why not
The court of appeals for the ninth circuit United States may impose on Apple Inc. to expand the list of supported iOS app stores. This became known from the reasoned decision of the court, published last week. According to the contents of the document, the company’s activities contradict the Antimonopoly legislation of the country, which in turn goes against the rules of retail trade and the interests of an indefinite circle of persons.
“Forbidding developers to sell apps for iPhone on other platforms than from the App Store, Apple Inc. prevents the development of competition in the market and restricts the rights of an uncertain circle of persons”, — follows from the decision. — Constraints are expressed in a direct threat to deny developers access to the placement in the App Store, as well as the cancellation of the safeguards agreement with the owners of the iPhone who used to download apps from third-party services”.
Originally the claim about compulsion of Apple Inc. to extend the list of available platforms for downloading applications took into consideration one of the Federal courts, but dismissed it for lack of sufficient evidence. This decision, declared the presiding judge of the court of Appeals for the ninth circuit of the United States, was unlawful, and allows you to resume the proceedings. For this it is necessary to file a statement with the signatures of those members of the case whose rights have been violated.
Rumor has it that the Braves have already found.
