Looks like Apple’s announcement this week that it was going to take 30% cut of any new subscribers to apps from within iTunes (e.g. news magazines, newspapers etc.) AND not allow their subscribers to go back out to the app’s homepage and subscribe there instead. This has caused a firestorm from Sony and music subscription services like Rhapsody who are already paying for the right to carry the music involved. There may be an Egypt-like revolt gathering in the digital square. Now the Feds bave gotten the scent and we may soon see some anti-trust activity.
