A German music site has lodged a competition complaint against Apple ahead of its iCloud announcement later today, reports “The Register” (http://macte.ch/Gimw5).
Simfy accused Apple of deliberately delaying approval of the company’s iPad application in order to favor its own products. The German company lodged its complaint with the German Federal Cartel Office and will also complain to European Union competition regulators.
“The music company said in a blog post that it was a great fan of Apple products,” says “The Register.” “But it said it was unacceptable to wait more than three months for approval of its iPad app without any reason being given. It accuses Apple of abusing its dominant position, and control of the app store, in order to bolster its own products.”
