Spotify: the accusation against Apple does not hold. The company is again questioned

In March, Spotify has submitted a complaint to the Antitrust against Apple, accusing the company of Cupertino of a discriminatory practice.

This is because Apple keeps a 30% commission from all revenues from sales by the App Store, including in app subscriptions. According to Spotify, this behavior hinders the competing services because of the fact perceive a lower level and can not in any way advertise (within the app or via email) the option of subscribing through the official website rather than via in-app, because otherwise it would violate Apple's rules that would lead to the ouster from the App Store.

The answer to Apple it was decided to get:

The one that uses Spotify is “rhetoric misleading”. The company wants all the benefits of a free app without being really such. Spotify pay Apple a commission of 15% for only 0.5% of its Premium subscriber, then nothing so transcendental. The “tax” is charged only on the sale of digital goods while on real goods or services such as Uber there are no commissions. In addition, Apple welcomes competition, but it's also true that other services are included in the App Store, a safe and reliable place to discover and download applications in addition to a great business opportunity for all developers.

Following this response, the Congress of the United States would have asked Spotify information related to his allegations that anti-competitive against Apple and whether the company will respond in a concrete way, you will come to another victory for Apple.
