US lawmakers have praised a recent ruling on the Apple-Epic suit, commended the move as a way of regulating the power of big technology companies.
The ruling overturned some of Apple’s App Store rules and gave “Fortnite” creator Epic Games a partial victory in its fight against Apple, showing the urgency to introduce updated laws to regulate the power of big technology companies.
U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar, chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s antitrust panel, noted that the ruling addresses some of her concerns, stating the U.S. needs to, “pass federal legislation on app store conduct to protect consumers, promote competition, and foster innovation,”
A joint statement from Republican U.S. Representative Ken Buck and Republican Senator Marsha Blackburn praised the bill, saying: “Apple has abused their power to bully and profit off small companies. All businesses should be able to communicate with their customers and not be held hostage by monopolistic behavior.”
