Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire says the companies are taking advantage of French developers.
“I learned that when developers develop their applications, and sell to Google and Apple, their prices are imposed, Google and Apple take all their data, Google and Apple can unilaterally rewrite their contracts,” Le Maire said on RTL radio. “All that is unacceptable and it’s not the economy that we want. They can’t treat our startups and developers the way they do.”
An investigation by the ministry's fraud office determined that there 'significant imbalances' in the relationship between the companies and developers between 2015 and 2017. The findings of a similar investigation into Amazon are being reviewed by a tribunal.
