Italy imposes hundreds of millions of euros in fines on Amazon and Apple

According to a statement issued today, Tuesday, an investigation found that the terms of a contract dating back to October 31, 2018, prevented official and unofficial retailers from selling original Apple products and the associated Beats brand on Amazon. mail.

This means that only Amazon itself and individual sellers selected by Apple were allowed to sell products there.

According to the anti-monopoly authority, this behavior is in violation of European Union law.

Amazon will pay 68.7 million euros in fines, while Apple will pay 134.5 million euros, according to the decision.
