Apple Says The App Store Is Not a Monopoly

If we were talking about Microsoft, the whole world would be up in arms calling it a monopoly. Since it is Apple, it's just a "closed system." roll eyes (sarcastic)

At a Tuesday hearing, Apple argued that requiring developers to sell their apps through its iTunes App Store and nowhere else is not an antitrust violation, nor is charging devs a 30 percent cut of their proceeds for distribution. Just because there are no third-party storefronts peddling discounted iPhone apps doesn't mean Apple is abusing a monopoly position over iOS apps.
