With regards to the following: EU hits Qualcomm with €997m fine for abusing its dominance
I have several questions about this piece of news:
- How is this different from a simple business deal, where a company could provide a cheaper alternative or subsidise the deal?
- How come Apple are not at all at fault in the eyes of the EU for this? Surely this amounts to accepting a bribe or at least anti competitive behaviour by them?
- How is this different from a company paying a provider to only use their service/product? Which I believe happens fairly regularly in many industries.
