New Proposal Would Let Companies Further Screw You Over With Terms of Service

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Vice: A collection of unelected lawyers [from the American Law Institute] this week is quietly pushing a new proposal that could dramatically erode your legal rights, leaving you at the mercy of giant corporations eager to protect themselves from accountability. Occasionally, this coalition (including all the members of the Supreme Court) meets to create "restatements," effectively an abridged synopsis or reference guide for the latest established precede...

The app that lets you play Steam games on your iPhone is finally available to download

Remember the Steam Link app that let you play Steam games on iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV? Apple yanked it from the App Store about a year ago, citing "business conflicts." The app allowed you to purchase games directly from Steam, bypassing Apple's App Store altogether. We all know that's a no-no in Apple's universe, so it wasn't exactly a surprise to see it pulled from the App Store. Apple said that the app wasn't entirely dead a few days later, and it took quite a long time ...

Thursday round-up

Adam Liptak reports for The New York Times that although “[a]bortion rights are at risk at the Supreme Court, … the short-term threat may not come from extreme laws like the one passed by Alabama lawmakers” this week: “The court led by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. is more likely to chip away at the constitutional right to abortion established in 1973 in Roe v. Wade than to overturn it outright,” and “[i]t will have plenty of opportunities to do so.” Joan Biskupic writes at CNN that “in his ...

Wednesday round-up

Richard Re analyzes Monday’s opinion in Franchise Tax Board of California v. Hyatt, in which the court overruled a 40-year-old precedent and held that a state cannot be sued in the courts of another state without its consent, for this blog. At The NCSL Blog, Lisa Soronen observes that Justice Clarence “Thomas spent a mere page explaining why a majority of the justices were rejecting stare decisis (let the decision stand) in this case.” Howard Wasserman writes at PrawfsBlawg that “[t]here is no t...

Daily News Roundup: Apple’s App Store Monopoly

As of late, Apple has been under fire for its App Store practices. Specifically, the fact that it takes a 30% cut of all app sales, causing developers to raise prices, leaving users no other choice but to pay up. Yesterday, the Supreme Court ruled iPhone owners could proceed with a suit against Apple for the practice. Since Apple only allows apps to be downloaded directly from its App Store on iOS, the claim is that it has a monopoly over app distribution. It’s an interesting angle because iOS ...

Google's New York City office is one of the city's biggest polluters, according to Mayor Bill de Blasio — and it could face millions in fines (GOOG, GOOGL)

Google's New York City office is the third largest contributor of greenhouse gas emissions for a building in the city and could face fines totaling more than $4 million should the company not make appropriate updates.  The tech giant's New York City headquarters — located at 111 8th Avenue — would violate a section of Mayor de Blasio's "Green New Deal" that requires the city's largest buildings to cut their greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 or face a severe penalty.

Supreme Court ruling means Apple could face lawsuits from lots of angry customers

The United States Supreme Court ruled this week that users could sue Apple for allegedly monopolizing the App Store and driving up the price of apps. This means that, if you’re so inclined, you could bring suit against Apple for overcharging you. Apple v Pepper, as the case is called, dealt with the issue of whether Apple’s 30 percent revenue cut is a charge that trickles down to consumers. Given that the App Store is a monopoly — meaning there’s really no other way to legally get an app on an i...

Accused of 'Terrorism' For Putting Legal Materials Online

Carl Malamud believes in open access to government records, and he has spent more than a decade putting them online. You might think states would welcome the help. From a report: But when Mr. Malamud's group posted the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, the state sued for copyright infringement. Providing public access to the state's laws and related legal materials, Georgia's lawyers said, was part of a "strategy of terrorism." A federal appeals court ruled against the state, which has asked t...

Apple's surprise defeat in the Supreme Court is bad news for Tim Cook's turnaround plan (AAPL, SPOT)

Apple's loss at the Supreme Court could ultimately hobble its services business. The court ruled that a case over the fees Apple charges on app sales could go forward, a move that could eventually force Apple to reduce them. Those fees comprise the biggest portion of Apple's services business — and a significant chunk of its total gross profit. Apple has been touting its services business as the engine of its future growth. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Thanks to the Sup...

Supreme Court Says Apple Will Have To Face App Store Monopoly Lawsuit

A group of iPhone owners accusing Apple of violating US antitrust rules because of its App Store monopoly can sue the company, the Supreme Court ruled Monday. From a report: The Supreme Court upheld the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals' decision in Apple v. Pepper, agreeing in a 5-4 decision that Apple app buyers could sue the company for allegedly driving up prices. "Apple's line-drawing does not make a lot of sense, other than as a way to gerrymander Apple out of this and similar lawsuits," wrot...

Supreme Court greenlights Apple customers' lawsuit over App Store price-fixing

The Supreme Court has ruled on a key question in Apple Inc v Pepper, a class action suit arguing that the App Store violated antitrust law by driving up prices through the monopolistic tactic of prohibiting users from buying apps from third parties, and then taking a 30% commission on every app sold, which led software companies to raise prices in order to remain profitable after Apple had taken its cut. Apple had asked the Supreme Court to prevent the case from moving forward on the ground...

Kavanaugh Sides With Liberal Justices In Ruling iPhone Users Can Sue Apple Over App Prices
