French finance ministry investigates Apple deals with iPhone carriers
France's finance ministry is investigating contract terms between Apple and local carriers selling the iPhone, according to reports. The initiative is <a href="" rel='nofollow'>believed</a> to be part of a broader look at contracts between carriers and phone makers. It's separate, however, from a <a href=" apple.contracts.exist/" rel='nofollow'>European Commission investigation into Apple's contract dealings</a>.<br />
<br />
The probe is also distinct from two antitrust investigations being conducted by France's Autorite de la Concurrence. One is concerned about whether Apple is treating resellers fairly; earlier this year, regulators <a href=" artners.complaints.say/" rel='nofollow'>raided Apple's offices for documentary evidence</a>. The other is concerned with the mobile app market, and could see antitrust charges brought against individual companies like Apple or Google, and/or the institution of new industry-wide policies.
