Moss Talks with NBC News About Apple App Store Antitrust Concerns

NBC News’ June 18 report “Apple’s app store is suddenly a flashpoint in the Big Tech debate,” included AAI President’s Diana Moss’ comments on the antitrust concerns facing the company. From the article:

Apple lost an earlier antitrust case at the Supreme Court four years ago, when the high court upheld a decision that Apple conspired with book publishers to raise the price of e-books.

“An expanding list of antitrust complaints does not work in any firm’s favor,” Diana Moss, president of the American Antitrust Institute, said in an email.

She said there were now “many pathways” for an antitrust case to move forward against Apple, and that the company’s past decisions in the app store may be telling. “That evidence could set some unfavorable context in future antitrust cases,” she said.
