“Canada’s Competition Bureau is investigating allegations that Apple Inc’s Canadian unit used anti-competitive clauses in contracts with domestic wireless carriers, the watchdog said on Thursday,” Alastair Sharp, Euan Rocha, and Leah Schnurr report for Reuters.
“The bureau said no wrongdoing by Apple’s Canadian arm has been found so far, without stating who made the allegations,” Sharp, Rocha, and Schnurr report. “The bureau this week sought a court order to compel Apple to turn over records relating to the ongoing investigation.”
“The bureau stressed that, so far, it has no evidence that Apple has contravened any rules and that it has not filed any application with the Competition Tribunal or any other court to seek remedies for any alleged anti-competitive conduct,” Sharp, Rocha, and Schnurr report. “‘Should evidence indicate that the Competition Act has been contravened, the Commissioner will take appropriate action,’ said Greg Scott, a spokesman for the bureau, in an email.”
