APPLE RULING? NOT ANYMORE
In a major setback for Apple, the Supreme Court ruled that iPhone owners can sue the tech giant for monopolizing its app store. A group of iPhone owners had accused Apple of violating US antitrust rules by not allowing users to get apps from any other source. In its opinion, the Supreme Court said consumers have the right to sue the company because they purchase apps directly from Apple. The ruling could have widespread implications for other tech companies that operate similarly walled-off online storefronts, an expert says.
