February 22, 2011:Deezer thinks regulators will squash Apple’s new subscription rules

Streaming music service Deezer is the latest to come out against Apple’s new rules on iOS subscriptions, with a statement claiming Apple will struggle to enforce them if regulators get involved. “It is very unlikely that Apple could legally apply these rules on the paid digital music services. It would be a leverage of its dominant position on the mobile applications market to reinforce its already over‐dominant position in the paid digital music market,” says the statement. “Thus, considering that the distribution of applications is entirely controlled by Apple, they could not force us to use their billing system. It’s even more unlikely to be legally applicable if the imposed commission is 7 times as high as any standard billing fee.”
