US Justice Department Reportedly Drafting Antitrust Complaint Against Apple
According to a recent report by Politico, the US Justice Department is in the early stages of drafting a potential antitrust complaint against the American tech giant, Apple. Citing a person with direct knowledge of the matter, the report added that the department’s antitrust division hopes to file suit by the end of the year.
The US Justice Department has not decided whether to sue Apple yet.
In July 2019, the US Justice Department had said that it was opening a broad investigation of major digital technology firms into whether they engage in anticompetitive practices.
Subsequently, Google was sued by the Justice Department in October 2020. The $1 trillion (roughly Rs. 79,95,900 crore) American tech giant was accused of illegally using its market muscle to hobble rivals.
