Apple files legal challenge to EUs Digital Markets Act

New Delhi: Multinational technology company, Apple has filed a legal case contesting a decision taken by the European Commission (EU) under its recently-introduced Digital Markets Act.

According to media reports, the legislation aims to make it easier for people to move between competing services, requiring them to inter-operate their messaging apps with rivals and let users decide which apps to pre-install on their devices.

Earlier this week, fellow tech giants, Meta and TikTok filed appeals contesting their designation as gatekeepers under the act.

New Telegraph had earlier reported that the EU introduced a digital marketing Act that in essence makes other tech companies share data with the big tech companies.

While details of Apples legal challenge have not been made public, Bloomberg News reported last week the company would challenge the inclusion of its App Store on the list of gatekeepers.

Reportedly, the Digital Markets Act is a regulation affecting organizations doing business in the European Union. As of November 2022, when it went into effect, it addresses antitrust concerns with large tech companies gatekeepers that control a lot of online activity and process massive amounts of consumer data.
