Quick hit: iPhone, SCOTUS and antitrust law | BlueCarp
("Quick hit" means I am reacting to media coverage and not the SCOTUS' decision itself). According to CNN, the United States Supreme Court ruled today that "iPhone owners can sue Apple for monopolizing App Store." This sentence from the CNN article struck me: Had Apple been allowed to set the terms of the legal fight, the court said, it would have hindered the ability of consumers to seek relief from alleged monopolists. Alleged monopolists? iPhones comprised 15.8% of the smart phone market during the last quarter of 2018. Apparently, "monopoly" means something different than I thought.
