South Korea bans Google, Apple payment monopolies

  • South Korea’s National Assembly approved legislation on Tuesday that bans app store operators such as Google and Apple from forcing developers to use their in-app payment systems.
  • The legislation prohibits the app market operators from using their monopolies to require such payment systems, which means they must allow alternative ways to pay.
  • The judge wondered why Apple couldn’t allow developers of apps like Fortnite to display a range of payment options within their apps.
