Comment Re:It might be something but it isn't anti-trust? (Score 3, Informative) 121

Anti trust implies controlling prices to the detriment of the consumer. Apple in no way sets or controls the pricing. An app developer is free to charge whatever they want or make it free.

IANAL, but I believe where antitrust charge comes into play is not in the control of pricing, but the control of access to the market. They have created a monopoly where they can dictate terms, fees, and other aspects of the market because the only path to that market is via their storefront.

M-W has nothing specifically about price control in their definition.
