In Korea, Apple and Google's mobile dominance is put to the test

Apple Inc. and Alphabet Inc.’s Google, the effective duopoly controlling most of the world’s smartphones, face a raft of legislative measures in the U.S. rebuking their “gatekeeper control” and urging a curb on their power to dictate terms on app marketplaces. Both charge a fee of typically 30% on purchases made through their stores and exclude alternative payment handlers, arguing this protects users from fraud and privacy invasion.

A new legislation will require free access to app payment providers. Silicon Valley titans say that privacy and security are under threat. Seoul’s General Attitudes Ahead of South Korea’s GDP Announcement SeongJoon Cho/Bloombergn Photographer South Korea is anticipated to be the first country to approve legislation banning Apple and Google’s dominance of mobile payments, setting a potentially dramatic precedent for their profitable app store operations from India to the United States.
