S.Korea set to curb Google, Apple commission dominance
August 25, 2021

Lawmakers in South Korea have pushed the issue of the commission structure since mid last year.
Earlier this month in the United States, a bipartisan trio of senators introduced a bill that would rein in app stores of companies that they said exert too much market control, including Apple and Google.
