Russia may force Apple and Google to cut commissions on the App Store and PlayStore

Russia can dictate the next chapter of the recent open war against Apple’s 30% commission on the App Store and Google on the Play Store. There is a new law proposal that can reduce this amount to 20% if it is approved.

According to Reuters, the normative proposal was submitted by politician and legislator Fedot Tumusov. If it is accepted in the Russian legal system, it would force Apple and Google to lower their percentages, or abdicate sales in Russia.

Russia may force commission cuts to 20%

Both Google and Apple stores have come under heavy criticism.

The proposal, submitted to one of the chambers of the Russian parliament, places new and increased pressure on US giants in the face of allegations of anti-competitive practices. At issue, more specifically, is the management of applications in their stores.

The bill aims to limit the commission charged by companies like Apple and Google by 20%. In addition, a third of the commission charged by the stores would, on a quarterly basis, have to revert to an information technology study fund.

Reducing commissions and being able to take products to users is a window of growth for developers and the IT industry“- writes Tumusov on social networks.

The challenge to 30% commissions grows

The proposed law adds the voice of Russia to the chorus of criticism of the American giants in the face of the recent blockade and consequent removal of the Epic Games account from the App Store and Play Store. However, Epic Games has already taken legal action.

The still recent case saw the court partially give Apple a reason. On the other hand, he criticized the block that this made to the development area of ​​Epic inside the App Store, forcing the maintenance of the Unreal Engine.

The Fortnite official promises to keep up the pressure and fight for her claim before US courts, while Apple will appeal the decision. In any case, more and more voices are joining this challenge.

Finally, Russia’s anti-monopoly body accused Apple last month of abusing its dominant position in the mobile app market through the App Store, calling for the inherent repairs.
