At this time, in many countries, an attempt is being made to pass legislation to restrict Apple’s rights in relation to 30% fees (commissions) adopted at the level of the corporation’s transaction policy; and the second point that threatens their financial well-being is the permission to create third-party points of sale for iPhone programs…


In the US state of North Dakota, senators decided to deprive Apple of the monopoly rights to sell applications written for their mobile devices and, thus, called into question the very cost-effective march on the planet of their smartphones and tablets.


The draft of this law No. 2333 provides for a prohibition for monopolists to restrict developers in placing their applications only on specialized sites and only when using these payment systems.


And Apple, known for its restrictions on developers, settlements and commissions, both on the cost of products and payments within the system, is coming under a backlash from senators…


Thus, there is, and not for the first time, an attempt on the part of the legislative authorities (as was already the case in the European Union and in Russia last year) to balance the efforts of application developers and the cost part of end users, limiting the destructive monopoly demands of the BigTech giants.


Google will also be affected by this law, because they also have a 30 percent tax (commission), but there is no ban on placing applications outside of Google Play.


The developers ‘ opinion is clearly on the side of the law. They are very concerned about Apple’s criteria, which it follows in its preferences for hosting third-party programs, with developed double standards for the possibility of obtaining advantages for the company’s own, internal developers.


While, of course, there are no real economic losses for Apple, at this time it is in such a state that it may take far more than one month to reach the level of the current legislative act.


As for the questions raised by developers last year about the presence of pressure on the Apple store’s ideas that attracted them, that is, the refusal to place or require improvements, or in other ways significantly complicating the release date of applications in the App Store, despite the fact that similar ones, authored by Apple itself, were available almost simultaneously – what kind of competition in general, in this case, can we talk about?..
