    Kavanaugh is right on this

    "Kavanaugh sides with liberal justices against Apple, deals blow to tech giant in App Store challenge"

    Apple has for years hidden behind a few words in law to mask what they were up to . raking in billions and never having to answer for it.

    Apple yes you are the seller .

    "“It is undisputed that the iPhone owners bought the apps directly from Apple,” Kavanaugh wrote. He also addressed Apple’s claim that they do not set app prices by pointing out that the company’s practice of charging app developers $99 per year plus 30 percent of sales indeed affects pricing."

    Just my hyperbole as I’m not a libertarian fan but my view this means a company will not be free to do what it wants with its technology/ platform. Some will be ok with that saying Facebook, google etc will not be allowed to dictate terms on its platforms either and maybe that needs to be but it simply means the US Govt like Chinas govt will decide.

    Apple sets up Apple store, tells the app makers what they can and can't do. Demands huge fees and payments for selling it only in their store. Apple is the seller period. About time Apple has to play by the rules. Apple needs to be held accountable for what they sell.
    In away like what is and is not a contractor. Apple was playing fast and loose with the law.

    Apple is just plain evil.

    If a developer creates an app for the iPhone or iPad, their only option is to sell it is through the Apple Store. They do not have the option to sell it through their own private website as the iOS operating system does not allow folks to install from any other source. Apple claims this is a "security feature" since the same developer must turn over the code for their app to Apple to have it "audited" before it can be listed on the Apple Store. That means Apple gets to go through whatever code the app developer created and learn from it before the developer is even allowed to make a dime. Do you honestly believe Apple is paying developers when they develop some new innovation for an app and Apple decides to include it in a future release of iOS?

    I will get beat up for this but

    Apple has a right to build their product and OS however they want. If they want to lock down their os so people have to sell apps via their apple store... the CONSUMER will determine if they are ok with that.

    so far the consumer is voting YES on apple

    I do not care for apple, but I am unwilling to say they should be forced to open their OS - after all it is their product and the consumer will stop buying it if they do not like it or how it is packaged

    $99 a year (or in other words $8.25 per month to be on their app store) and 30% of profit.... if you are selling 100,000 apps per year @ $3.99 per app it means you make $399,000-$99= $398,901 - $119.670.0 =
    $279,230.70

    30% may seem high but the great thing is you only pay if you are making money... another way to look at it is at $8.25 a month and a cut of sale price.. anybody..even these 4 young guys could afford it and they are now rich

    What’s wrong with that? If you don’t like it then don’t buy an Apple.

    The developers don’t have to market their apps to Apple owners. They can develop their own device if they want to.

    I pay a premium price for Apple products so I don’t have to bother with junk apps and security issues that I had when I owned Android crap.

    Apple released a statement Monday afternoon saying they are "confident we will prevail when the facts are presented," adding that the App Store "is not a monopoly by any metric."
    Apple deserved to lose the case, just for using the word "metric". Who is their mouthpiece? Plus they have become a pack of loathsome thieves, IMHO.

    Apple has a lot of rights to it product and how they manage it. They do not have a right to setup a store then claim they are not the seller. Busted now pay Apple pay until you bleed. Time to play the game the way everyone else has to.

    You are saying capitalism is evil. I don’t think you realized that when you wrote this but that is what is written.
