The Society du Figaro, which creates the Figaro news app,L’Equipe24/24, which creates the L’Equipe sports news and streaming app, and Le Geste, a group of French content generators, are the complainants in the proposed class action.

The complaint asserts that by taking just one app store for mobile bias running iOS, Apple has abused its monopoly power over app distribution. The action was filed in civil court in Oakland, California.

The complainants claimed that by doing this, the Cupertino, California- grounded business has been suitable to stifle invention and client choice while charging” supracompetitive” 30 percent commissions for 14 times and$ 99 monthly freights to app inventors.

Apple’s conduct aren’t justified by any licit business requirements orpro-competitive considerations, the complaint stated. Apple’s measures, on the other hand, aim to exclude competition.


The Monday complaint asks for triadic damages for breaking both California state law and civil antitrust law, as well as an instruction against any anticompetitive geste.

Both the American legal establishment Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro and the Paris- grounded Fayrouze Masmi- Dazi are defending the heirs in court.

The action filed on Monday is analogous to a previous bone by Hagens Berman against Apple, which ended in a$ 100 million agreement for bitty iOS inventors last August and criticised Apple’s high commissions.

With respect to Google’s running of inventors in its app store, the company and AlphabetInc. agreed a$ 90 million agreement in June.

AppleInc.v. Societe du Figaro etal.,U.S. District Court, Northern District of California, No. 22- 04437, is the case at hand.


In the action filed on Monday, the defendant is asking for treble damages for violating both California state law and civil antitrust law, as well as an instruction to stop further anticompetitive action.

Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro in the United States and Fayrouze Masmi- Dazi in Paris are the complainants’ legal counsel.

The complaint brought against Apple on Monday is similar to one that Hagens Berman preliminarily brought against the company, which ended with a$ 100 million( aboutRs. 800 crore) agreement for lower iOS inventors who had complained about Apple’s extravagant freights in August of last time.

With Alphabet’s Google, the business agreed a$ 90 million( about Rs. 700 crores) agreement in June on how inventors were treated in the app store.
